We live in a goal-driven culture, where we’re taught to dream big, set goals, and never, never give up hope. But when it comes to dreams of a family, the playing field changes dramatically. Wanting a baby goes way beyond setting a goal and striving to reach it, and the factors that push us towards that goal are numerous and complicated.
In the first of a four-part Life Without Baby series, author and blogger Lisa Manterfield guides you through what may be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever have to make: choosing to let go of the dream of motherhood and moving towards accepting a life without children. Sharing her own story and wisdom gained from the worldwide Life Without Baby community, Manterfield gently guides you to discover when it’s time to let go, how to create a meaningful ending to an indefinite journey, and how to begin making peace with a life without children. Most of all, she offers hope, support, and the affirmation that you are not going through this alone.
