This article is amazing. I am 32 with no kids and I am not unhappy about it. I agree that there is definitely a stigma about having children. One of my best friends has often seemed concerned at my childlessness. I told her time and time again that I am a human with importance just like a baby. I am someone's baby and I do not need to have children to validate my womanhood and existence. Over the years, we had this discussion in several different ways. Thanks for writing this article.
