Cupid’s Advice:

There are beautiful things about having children, but there are also benefits to not doing so.  The answer is to be happy with what you have.  Cupid has some advice:

1. Take it day by day: Don’t obsess over not having kids at this very moment.  Things can always change quickly, and it’s best to be happy with what you do have in the present.

2. Focus on what you have: Focus on your family, friends and career.  If you’re too obsessed with having children, you can miss what’s going on right in front of you.

3. Consider your options: If you really want to try to have children, look into adoption and fertility treatments, and find out what’s the best option for you.
