Quoting Big Booty Heaux™:" Yes I think its selfish...being a single mother is much different than making the conscious decision to parent a child alone."
Quoting speaktruth2powr:" Yes, I think it is selfish. I was the eldest of three, raised by a single mother. I ended up being the second parent in the household. It sucked."
Quoting .Solange.:" Yes that's very true. Sure thing is, the last thing I want to do is bring another child into our home ... [snip!] ... who is in the foster care system or other, and bring love, stability and our own little family. I see what you're saying though"Your intentions are good, its just not fair to the child.
Quoting That-Girl:" No way is it selfish. In one way or another, no one is perfectly ready to have kids but if the major bases are covered, I'd go for it!"Dont you think being in a stable relationship is one of those major bases?
Quoting Viv, Ev & Gwen ♥:" I think it would be a very stupid and impulsive thing for you to do, just from reading some of your past ... [snip!] ... I don't have savings to fall back on until I either get a work at home job or can go back to work after the baby is born."
