  • They usually don't recommend getting pregnant after the age of 35 due to the increased risks. If you are financially secure, you could always seek a donor & do it on your own. Or you could foster to adopt.

  • You don't give up hoping but you live your life and see what happens. Get involved in interesting activities and groups. Use meetup.com (just one example) to get involved in things you like to do. Not with the goal of meeting someone but just enjoying interesting things. You never know who you might meet as you do things you enjoy. GL

  • I hear ya, I am single, and I haven't found the right guy. So, I don't really have advice. I'm being to think I will never I thought I did with my son's father but I feel so lonely, depressed and little bit of despair. My son is 3 1/2 I still would like to have another baby someday but I guess all you can hang onto is hope that everything will work. I hope you find the love of your life.

  • Get her a pet. Seriously, don't have a child that you are not ready for simply to appease your child.

  • Kids will always ask for siblings, but they're not the ones who have to pay for them and care for them for eighteen or twenty years. Don't let your daughter's demands factor into your decision.
