Finally, a mother who tells gives parenthood an honest appraisal and tells the childfree straight-out that it's okay to NOT have children. She ends her article with:
"I'm here as a new parent to stand up for all those nonparents out there -- the ones who haven't yet made up their minds about kids and the ones who definitely have -- and proclaim that there is nothing wrong with not having children. I did it for more than three decades and led what I'd consider a pretty rich and fulfilling life, filled with learning, love, travel, adventure, laughter ... and other people's children.
You're not being selfish. Your life won't be empty. And you're certainly not destined for a sad, lonely end. People can find richness in their lives in ways that don't include progeny."
Read the whole article. It's a good read. (Thanks Angela for sharing the link on Facebook).
