Month Meme - Day 11

Tags: ,
Ganked this from mrstater. Would love to see more people do it, if you've got any time at all!

Day 11: Your kids, or your feelings about having kids
I love kids. I've taught reading classes with people of all ages, worked at summer camps, volunteered in elementary school classes, etc. and I really and truly love kids. They are so amazing and have such potential and the idea of having a child and helping that child figure out his or her potential and being given the opportunity to see the world through their wide-eyed wonder is just fantastic.

For most of my life, I always assumed I would have kids. It is just such a given in our society and I love them, so why wouldn't I? For the last several years, at least since age 25, I've become increasingly disenchanted with the whole biology aspect of having kids. Basically, the idea of being pregnant and giving birth just doesn't sound like much fun. But I still want to raise kids. I am somewhat open to the idea of having biological children and am willing to discuss it with whatever guy turns up with whom I decide to spend the rest of my life, but at this point adoption is basically my default setting with biological reproduction as the Plan B.
