When I was was pregnant with my third and last child. I had decided it would be my last child no matter what. I already had two boys and was hoping for a girl. I was lucky and got my girl. But even if I wouldn't of....I still would of went through with getting my tubes tied. I figured two out of three pregnancies were real bad ones. I didn't want to take anymore chances.
So anyone that have kids, do you plan on having anymore? If not why?
My oldest is seventeen years old. I do realize I could become a grandmother any time now. I do hope I have raised my son right. So, he will be able to raise his kids when the time comes. But I have always told him if for some reason he couldn't. I would help out or take over if the need arises. I believe kids/grand-kids having a good support system is important if we want them to become a positive impact on society. I do know of some people who will not raise their grand-kids if the need would arise. they feel they have raised their kids and they are done. The kids can go to foster care. I myself could not live with myself if I knew my grandchild would be in foster care. Instead of with family.
Would you raise your grandchildren if the need ever arises? Why or why not?
