I finally just gave up on this one. I had higher hopes, but eventually, it felt like I was just reading the same thing over and over again, just put into different words. It's more or less, "Sometimes people don't have kids. And that's okay. Sometimes they never wanted them. And that's okay. Sometimes they put off having them, then decided they didn't want them or discovered they couldn't. And that's okay. Sometimes people just can't seem to have them. And that's okay." Over and over and over. It's as though those of us who are childless by choice need a very large affirmation that, yes, it's okay not to have kids. "Look! You're not alone! There are others out there! I've talked to all of them!" Probably worth checking out of a library or borrowing from a friend, but not worth paying full price for.

Amanda I fully expected you to end with, "So the book kind of sucked, and that's okay." It sounds like that Stuart Smiley sketch Al Franken used to do on SNL. "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and, gosh-darn-it, people like me! So I don't need kids!"
