I still feel the need to recover from my first pregnancy. It wasn’t easy when you’re working.
A growing family has to have sufficient funds to be able to provide each one’s needs. At the moment, we are not ready for this.
This is my primary concern. I know how it is. I was the only child – for almost 10 years. My mom gave birth to my brother when I was already 9 years and 5 months to be exact. I was excited of course. But changes somehow affected me. I was not alone anymore. The family as a whole was delighted as a result of this new addition. I felt a little jealous every time my dad would ask for my brother first, who was miles away at that time.
We are talking about a 9 year old girl here. What about an 18 month old little girl? How would she react if she sees her mother carrying , feeding and comforting another child?
We still stand firm with our decision – we’re not having another baby till everyone is ready.
But if it’s God’s will, we will accept and take the challenge of having another one – whole heartedly.
