Seems often those that shouldnt have kids do, and those who would be great parents chose not to or cant have kids!
Having kids isn't the only way to show your greatness. I know I could be a pretty good mother. Circumstances in my life don't allow it to happen. I have no regrets.

I work hard. I travel the world. I help people who need it. I have a great husband, I own a home. I am fulfilled in all areas of my life.

Some people think they need children to feel fulfilled. That's fine. I have found fulfillments in other ways. (I do have a stepson so it's like having a child but he's not mine biologically. I don't know if the feelings are different when they're yours).
