“My question is to some of the women who are only children themselves. I’m an only child in my early 40’s… I have a very small family as does my husband.
We are blessed with a gorgeous little boy. We don’t live too close to family and don’t have additional family support which can be tough at times. Our child will grow up also with no family circle as such…
So grand parents who are aging and one uncle whose children are much older than our little boy. We are trying to decide on another baby. I know of course at the end of day it’s our decision but I’d love to hear from any women in similar positions – what they did and how life panned out.
I often see when people wonder about adding to their family, people advise if you have the financial stability and family support to go for it. However we would really be doing it ourselves with not huge money. We both work but housing and childcare costs are very high.
I don’t actually know other adult only children so would love to hear if there’s some collective wisdom out there. My own main motivation for another baby would be for my child to have a sibling” -Anonymous
