Reading the 31st March 2014 edition of the Daily Mail left me feeling melancholy and deep in thoughts for all sorts of reasons?
The front page headline leapt out at me about more and more women over 50 having babies... Thinking "phew they're lucky to get pregnant at that age"' then reading in saw they were IVF cases where women sought help abroad! Even one women giving birth to twins at 61. Hmmm a morally tough subject... As most of these women appeared to be without the "father", choosing sperm donor options. I often think what will that child think and react like when older, but hey each to their own. Who am I to judge? I did know my dad until he left and remarried when I was 12, never seen him again unfortunately ... His choice.
Then reading the next headline that the beautiful kate O'Mara died on Mothers' Day. Although she blessed with children her story ended with tradgey.
Then there is the adoption story above, how we are dealt such diverse circumstances...
We each suffer many different types of bereavement ... The things we never quite had, have and lose!
Your thoughts? Xx
