Perhaps having kids saves you from mourning the person you might have been

Kids are such blessings! I don’t have kids of my own yet, but was a full-time caregiver of my brother’s two sons who are now 5 & 4 years old for a few years. As much as it was chaotic, noisy, and sometimes even obnoxious, I wouldn’t have traded them or their love for anything else. I have always imagined having lots of kids. My sister has five. I’m not sure how many I want, but I’d like to have at least three of my own and also foster/adopt some later down the line. Your article is so inspiring!
