So I'll be turning 32 soon. My life has been mostly pleasant. I don't have any 5 year plan or anything like that, but I do want to be a mom no later than 34. I am single, no great love of my life, not even someone to like out there at the moment. One thing I have always wanted was to be a mother. I absolutely love children and I know I have a "'mom"' in me.
Only thing is.....like I said - there is no one with whom I can have a baby. That in itself is not a HUGE problem so I see 3 solutions:
1. Adoption: I've reasoned that it would be wonderful to help a child that already is in this world but has no mother / father to call their own.
2. Artificial insemination:
3. Find someone who wouldn't mind helping me in this cause (someone I know of course), but doesn't have to be in the childs' life if they didn't want too.
I know raising a child alone can be hard, but I'm emotionally and financially stable and have a huge family that would be there to add to the love. Some may think that raising a baby on ones' own would impact negatively on the child - however that is not necessarily the case, many single raised children haven't been scarred in the least.
**big sigh** I suppose I've got a couple of years for this decision - any donors?
