After 2 failed pregnancies (and no living children), I have had a hard time filling that emptiness in my life. We got a puppy, and that helped, but he is no human. However, in a series of unexpected events, we moved from our home back in with my DH parents and I found it. The house across the street from us has 13 people, with a woman raising her children and now 4 of her grandchildren. She is not able to provide for all of them what they need most, attention and loads and loads of love. She is one person who is spent and I feel for her.
When we moved in, the youngest of the grandkids (age 5) found what he needed in us, and us in him. His mother is a drug addict who never wanted kids (and tells them that to their faces). Their grandmother has custody of all 4 boys. Other than living for my DH, I now feel like I have someone to live for. He is my everything. I think about him all day when he is at Kindergarten and cant wait for him to come home. He does all but sleep at my house every day since we moved in. My DH loves him just as much and even has the priviage of being his music teacher at school. He is in constant contact with him regular teacher about his progress.
So what am I saying? I am saying I feel just about complete. I still want to give birth to my own children, but for now this is EXACTLY what we needed in our lives. Someone for us to love and care for who needs us just as much.
Have you found anything to fill your void?
