I’m feeling a little reminiscent today, so I’m dusting off this post I wrote back in January for KnotSoSubtle.com. Being the parent of an only child can sometimes cause feelings of guilt and regret. Take a look at my story and see if you can relate. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
I had planned to have more children but, as it so often does, life got in the way. Troubles in my marriage, a financial hardship, and a serious injury thrown in for good measure pushed that dream out of reach. Instead of a sibling, I’ve spent most of her life trying to mold her into a strong, independent woman who is as comfortable being alone as she is in a crowd.
