Most of us go through our lives with our minds set on how many, their names, how far apart in age, etc. Others of us don't want children at all. There comes a point in everyone's life though, where they long for that meaning in their existence. It may be to have someone to love you unconditionally, to never be alone or have an empty house, or simply to keep your family name going. Being a good parent is the hardest job you will ever have, but the most worthwhile one!
