N is for...

I was going to just not write this letter, as only one thing came to mind.

But to those of you who know me well, they know that N is for No Kids.

I don't have any children.  I wish more than anything that I did.  Most of the time.  My sister has 2 adorable babies, and I have none.  We just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary.  I have watched my best friends get married, have children and grow up, and part of me feels so left behind.

True, I have my students.  I have my puppies.

But I have always wanted to have a large family.  As time goes by, I realise that this is not going to be my lot in life.  I have come to terms with it, for myself.  But, every time I find out that someone around me is expecting, I get a little sad.

One day I may be able to adopt.  Which I think has always been my real dream behind the large family dream.  Until then, I shall have to just be happy with what I have.


  1. painful situation...sorry.
    But yes, be happy with what you have.
    and dream, too, for dreams can and do come true.

  2. My daughter has this same situation. It's such a hard one. I hope and pray that things turn around for you...I can't imagine how difficult this must be.

    Thanks for a poignant post on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "N".

    Hugs and A+
