Is there anyone else out there beside myself who is not going to be having children? (For sure) I do not want to be a mother and I get a lot of comments such as "You'll change your mind" or "OMG! Why do you hate children?" Or even; "You must have been abused as a child." I wish people would just respect my decision to remain childless and realize that I am not going to change my mind. For the record, I do not hate children, not at all. I just wouldn't be a very good mother, for many reasons. Anyone else not going to have children or didn't have children?
