Score one for the single mom to be!

Still not ready to write about the last few days. There has been some good in the midst of the mess, and I want to tell you all about it, but ...

Anyway, re the title of this post, yesterday at my friend's shower I was talking to 2 women, a mother and daughter. The daughter is about my age. We were talking about my efforts to conceive. The mother said to me, "You're planning on doing this on your own? That's so hard!" I smiled and agreed with her that it would be hard, "but not as hard as not having a child I desperately want." I watched my words hit her. She paused and said, "Yes, that's true."

Score one for CHOICE!
