My daughter is 5 1/2 and it's been a combination of choice and chance that she's an only child. When she was 20 months old I was in a major car accident and broke both hips. Therefore, couldn't have a second child... then for several years chose not to risk major pain to have a baby. Now that I'm healed and functioning again we can't get pregnant and it's hard to think of starting all over again... diapers, bottles, potty training, not sleeping through the night? So, we have registered with two adoption agencies, and we're waiting.
What about you? I'd love to hear other's stories of why and how you've ended up as a family of three.
