I am 25 years old. I had my daughter when I was only 19, and a sophomore in college. Though her father was present when he chose to be, I was still basically a single mother. I knew from my sister's situation; having three kids before the age of 24, that my daughter was going to be the only child for a while.
Now I've been single for the past 4 years, and though I am still young, I want to be able to have another baby before I'm 30. I applaud women who have their babies in their 30's and 40's, but I don't want to be one of those women. I always wanted my kids to be close in age because I know how much an age gap can affect the relationship of siblings. From my mom's previous marriage, my four older siblings are either 2 years or a year and a half apart from each other. I'm four years apart from the last one. They seemed to be close and I was always left bonding with myself. From my dad, my two older brothers are a year and a half apart from each other and they are close. I'm 14 and 12 years apart from them, so there is no real relationship there.
My daughter is 6 now, and though her father has another child who is an infant, it is different when the sibling is from me because she will live with the child and be more close.
I'm having baby fever so bad!!!! But I haven't met the right guy. And when I do meet a guy, he says he isn't ready for kids and it will be a long time until he is, or he is financially stable....that's understandable. But what is a girl to do when she wants a baby like RIGHT NOW?
I am in the process of becoming a foster parent, hopefully of an infant or toddler.
I want a baby so bad!!! I don't know what to do!!!
