The last twenty years of my life went **ZIP**!! (Snaps fingers) My biggest regret is not having another child. I tried my hardest to create a stable life. But work begets more work. And, I don't want to parent again alone. Well, guess what?! I'm past 40 now. (Where did my thirties go?) At least I can say that all that others my age are going through, I already went through, and I'm also working on a massive project with my own town (the party of the millennium) for economic development. My daughter turned out to be extraordinarily beautiful and talented.
But somehow, inside, I keep focusing on having another baby (which I cannot anymore). I really need to grow up and be thankful for what I have. How can I adjust?

You're in a great place in your life right now! I know how you feel, wanting another baby, after my second one, I wanted another baby so bad for years but finally gave up hoping for it to happen when I turned 40. At the age of 41 and again at 42, we were surprised with babies! Now at 44, with my 2 oldest being 24 & 18, instead of enjoying an empty nest with my husband, we're tied down with a 2 and a 3 yr old. Believe me, you don't know how good you have it until get what you think you want. I love my children more than anything, but sometimes I feel like I'd go back in a heartbeat and change it.
