At 52 years old, I'm a daughter, wife, stepmother, sister, aunt and friend. I am all of these things and I am grateful. However, the one thing I am not is a mother. Years ago, I made the decision not to have children. What I failed to do, however, was listen to the voice of my future self.

Don't Pity Us Because We Don't Want Kids. Be Happy for Us.

I could not be happier for loved ones who choose to become parents. For some it is their true calling. But for others, myself and my husband included, it isn't. If you are our friends and loved ones, be happy for us. Because we are.
