As I look at the joy in their faces while growing into this new level of life, I know immediately that they’re experiencing something that I never will and that pushes me to be sure I am clear about my decision.

About six years ago I started to really evaluate whether or not I was meant to have children. I had been married in my early 20s and knew that marriage was something I loved and desired to have in my life again, but I’d never had that desire where children were concerned. This week I wrote a really personal blog for my friends at Healthline that goes even deeper into this decision than I have before. You can read that here and please let me know what you think and if it resonates with you, I love hearing from you!
