I was born to be a mom, I always wanted a big family. I was unfortunate enough to be one of the many women who suffer from endometriosis and was unable to have any more after my now-16-year-old daughter was born. In fact, when she was two, I had to have a hysterectomy. We tried to go down the adoption path, but that didn't work out (long story.)
Anyway, it seems like the majority of moms on here chose to have only one. And that's great, I'm glad there's a place for everyone. But that's not me - I didn't chose this, it happened to me. Is there a place here for someone who wanted more than one? I mean, she's 16, we're not persuing other avenues now, it's never gonna happen, and I really have come to terms with it. I just am afraid I don't have anything in common with those who are talking about why they think having only one is right for them, because it I never felt it was right for me.
