I almost proved them wrong once. I was pregnant for almost five months right before my twentieth birthday, but my body let go of the child. The devastation of that day still haunts me. In fact,frequently think about how old my son or daughter would be now. Every time that thought crosses my mind, I sink into a depression and wonder: why can’t I do something so basic as have a child?

How can I get rid of my yearning for a child so the pain will stop? Thankfully, as the years have gone by, I worry less about the answers to questions and focus more on my desire to be a mother.
