I love your honesty. It's an impossible question because there is no right answer. Is parenting hard? Unbelievably. Is it rewarding? To many, but not all. Can you live a rich life without children? Certainly. But if the ache is there, and you truly want to do it, you can. There's always a way to make it work, even if you have to McGuyver your way through it.
