Well, so far we only have one, but we want to have many more.
The reason ... well, we just love children.
We have enough love to take care of many children. I can't imagine how I would feel if I knew that out baby would be our last. We would be devastated and would feel a great sense of loss. I would hate to think that I would never again have the anticipation and hope of pregnancy and the joy of giving birth.
There is something inside of me that "yearns" for another baby. Especially at LLL meetings, when I see all the mothers with their teeny , tiny newborns, and I just feel that "pang" for another babe.
I love being a mother, in a sense I feel that my being a mother is a fullfillment of my vocation. I think that women are biologically programmed to be mothers and to want more babies.
It always strikes me as funny when I am someplace and a women comes in with a new baby and someone invariable says "Don't get too close, you will start to want one yourself"
BTW, I grew up in a family with 5 kids, and I my aunt and uncle had 9 children (both families are a mixture of biological and adopted children) and I love getting together with both my family and my cousins.
I have a special bond with my siblings, they are the only ones after all who know what it was like to grow up the way we grew up and the only ones I could really talk to about how "weird" our parents were LOL.
Well, just my thoughts. Sorry so long.http://amelia.themomteam.com
