Why have children?
Why do people want to have children?
No seriously. I mean this question. Why do people choose, and therefore want, children? I am not asking because I am critical of wanting children. Don't interpret the tone in a bad way. It is just utter curiosity. Because, you see, I am trying to figure out why I want children. But I don't know why.
Would I have WANTED children if Junia hadn't shown up? It's no secret that we were, uh, less than pleased to have an embryo in our life. But she has since her embryonic stage turned into someone we want in our life: Someone we value, love, care deeply for beyond our imagining.
So reader, why do YOU want(ed) children?
Why do you think other people WANT children?
