What was your reason for having children?

To have someone to love, to have someone love you, to have someone need you, etc?

  • Well....since i was not expecting to get pregnant....none of those.

    But, i would add another option - to give a soul a good chance at life.

  • Well I got pregnant when I was 17 but I always wanted to be a sahm anyway. I had just planned college first lol. Anyway I wanted kids because I love kids. I wanted to be a good mom and raise and bring decent human beings into the world. Sure having someone to love, and love me is a plus, but my reason was just this feeling in me that it was what I was meant to do.
