Im a single Mum to a beautiful 6yr old girl but for the last year and a half I've wanted to have another baby but the thing is i dont have a partner and I know that even if i met someone now it would be quite a while before the discussion of children would come up. I dont want my daughter and her sibling to have a huge age gap between them like i had with my brother. a few friends suggested a one night stand but i could never do that to someone or my child so i have been considering using a donor only thing is im worried what people will think mainly my family' my daughter wasnt exactly planned and i had her a few months before my 18th birthday it was a bit of a family scandel. so i dont know how they will react when they find out ive used a donor i know my mum is unhappy about the idea as iv discussed it with her she doesnt understand why i want another baby let alone using a donor, she's not exactly the maternal type and when i tried to explain to her that im ready for another child and that i dont want to wait until Mr Right comes and lets face it if he ever comes!! so i guess what im asking is your opinion on a single 24 year old mum having another baby? do you think its selfish of me to bring another baby into the world who wont have a father (my daughters father has no contact with her he even moved states so he didnt have to see her) Opinions ill take the good and the bad i want your honest answers??
