    I Think I Can't Have Children...

    I was told, when I was 15, that I would never be able to have children because my womb is too small to carry a baby. It's sooo depressing, and it's making me feel like I'm not worth anything. Most women have that natural instinct to nurture, to be a mother. While I can adopt, or...

    Just born that way.

    Only It Wasn't True.
