Now that I am reaching my maximum age to have a baby, I am saddened that I haven’t had a baby yet. But I don’t regret any of the decisions I made that kept me too busy to focus on having kids. I believe in the timing of my life, and all the things in it. I believe in all the things that have happened, all the opportunities I’ve made the best of, and maybe I need to start accepting that I may never have a child of my own. I do have an incredible goddaughter, who is such a bright beam of light, that I am delighted that I get to spoil her in all of the best of ways. Sigh.

I don’t know how I’ll feel if I never become a mother, but I know I would be the dopest mother! In my dreams I see, play dates, museum visits, and being supportive of their interests. All the things my mother was to me, but finding ways to be whatever was needed for my own children. However, as I’ve learned, Anything can happen!
