Thank you so much for you comment! I am 63 years old and I have no children at all and I started to talk about my situation. And because of your comment I see that I am not alone. Thank you s0 much! It doesn’t change the situation and the depression that often comes along but I see now that I am not alone.
Thank you for your comment – I’m glad that you feel less alone now. Hugs, Jody x
Jody, I am 74 years old and was never able to have children, I have grieved all these years. I love children and I had a day care for many years also did some private care. I’m doing better than what I was, I went into deep depression and my husband could never understand, he had 2 children by his first wife. I’m so glad I found your site. Thank you so much.
I was childfree by choice with my husband in 1974, then decided to get pregnant at 31 yo in 1981 for 2 unsuccessful years. Gave up and still married 43 years later. Never ever easy, but so happy I found this group. It’s been a delight.
Judith – I’m so glad you found us too. I’ve often heard from women whose partners already have children that they can feel alone in their grief. We have a wonderful private online community too where you can connect with other women who share that experience. Hugs, Jody x
