Ok so I'm 23 years old and had my son when I was 21. I planned not to have children but to adopt when I finished school and got married. My DH and mother told me to have a least one because its so different than adoption. Well my son was unplanned but he is my world. To this day I still can't believe I'm a mother. He is so well behaved, eats well and sleeps like an angel. Now of course my family is asking, "you ready for another?" "When the next baby?" And I want to tell them to mind their own business and that we don't plan on having another one for awhile. Due to me finishing school and me and DH are still trying to get our own house. But me and DH were talking and we seriously can not picture ourselves with another child. Is that selfish of us? I'm not going to lie I never wanted to get pregnant. I didn't want the belly, the extra weight, or to go through child birth, it just wasn't for me. But don't get me wrong!! I don't know where I'd be without my son!! Even my old sister says she can't see me with another child just because how miserable I was will pregnant. But I do still want to adopt. Mainly older children between 6-15. And even possible become foster parents. I just can't stand the one people judge me because I only want one child.
