I have made countless bad decisions in my life, but never having children is not one of them. Not all of us are cut out to be mothers, no matter what our friends might tell us. I hope young women today who secretly feel the same way will draw strength from my story.
Being a mother requires a set of skills I have always known I do not possess. But there are other ways to be kind, nurturing and determined to leave the world better than we found it. I just might have the skills for that.
