I can always remember wanting a child. At 19 I got married and had my first child. At 22 I had my second (which we lost to SIDS when she was3 months
old.) I disclose this because I will only be discussing my one remaining child. Anyhow I am 33 now.
I love my daughter and would lay my life down for her in a hearbeat. But I often wonder if I should have had her. I am not speaking of regret that I
had her, but the regret that I did not think more aboutthe world I was bringing her into. I contemplate on how her world is so vastly different than
what most of ours was like.
It has become unsafe for a child to do almost anything now. They are taken from their front yards, the mall, and even school. Food shortages are being
spoken of. The climate is chaos, the economy is a hot mess for lack of a better phrase. The list goes on and on.
My question to you is... If you had it to do all over again and knew what you do now would you still have chosen to bring a child into this world?
Would you consider it more carefully or decide not to have a child at all?
Again, I am not speaking of (I wish my child was never born). I am speaking of whether you feel you would have made a different decision if you had
had a crystal ball.
