I Don't Feel I Am Missing Anything ...
I don't understand the reason for having children, truly I don't. I imagine that alot of people who hear me say this think I am cold and unfeeling. It's not that I don't enjoy my nieces and nephews when I am around them - I do, but God, am I ready to go home after a weekend. :) Maybe it's because they are not my kids - I hear that all the time. :) But I truly cannot imagine having one, either. It would drive me nuts - constantly having to be responsible for someone else. I know this sounds selfish, but my life is just fine the way it is.
I have been very happily married for nearly 15 years; my husband and I enjoy freedom that no kids brings. If we ever wanted children, we would adopt. There are so very many children in this world now without homes, who go hungry every day - why would I create more kids when I could take one or two of those to love and give homes to?
I am childless by choice, and very, very happy that way.
