Once upon a time, there was a young girl from the slums of Montreal who had only one dream – to have babies. Even children are aware of their status and situation. Children of lower status have little self confidence and inner strength, and dare not dream, for stars are beyond their reach. But I wanted to be a mom, and mothered all the children I met in my life.

Do we want to have kids? Yes we do, but we always say the same thing: “This is not a good time.” Most of my friends say the same thing, but when one does get pregnant, she never regrets it and always enjoys the thought of having a baby. Not only that but the rest of us are jealous. I don’t think it is so for men. They have more of a need to “provide” and all that stuff, where we have a physical reaction that makes us say “me too please.”

I am sure there are alot of people in this world who do not want children now or ever, but for me, as long as I can remember I always wanted children.
