1. Bravo! I wish more people looked at things that way. As the headlines prove, nothing is a sure bet, no matter what kind of equipment one has down below!

    I was absolutely thrilled to have a boy. I would have been thrilled to have a girl. Basically, I was thrilled to have a BABY – whatever it might have turned out to be. Mine was healthy, but even if he hadn’t been, I would have loved him/her.

    Being an older mom, I got the genetic testing – and was dismayed to find that most people expected me to get rid of it if there was a problem. That wasn’t why I did it. Having very little money at the time, I wanted to have time to be prepared with whatever my child would need when it was born – or be able to start saving for eventual needs. As it turned out, he was perfectly healthy – but I would have loved him even if he wasn’t. A lot of people just don’t understand that.

    And I would never question the number of children anyone has. I’m one of six. My aunt is one of 18. My dad and mom are both one of two. As long as the kids are supported and loved, what does it matter?

  2. Interesting thoughts, I never knew people got to hung up one having at least one of each. I’m expecting our second, a girl, while our first is a boy. This, one of each, is new territory for my husband and I because I grew up with a sister and he grew up with a brother. There is no perfect match, just your match. We’re not sure if our family is “complete” but I’ll tell you having a boy and a girl is not a factor in that equation. 🙂
