You are blessed to have wonderful sons and grandchildren!
There are plenty of children that need love in this world! Are we selfish to bring in a child that has our genes and "looks like us", and to pass on our name?
We should have the ability to love a child even if it's not biologically ours.
Every day in this world is Brighter because I have my children !!! I agree that in this manner I am selfish and proud Of it!!!
I don't know how people can even hate any child, theirs or not.. Bringing child into this world is and can be considered selfish only and only because we want to be happy and kids are best way to keep us happy, be it our or others.
There are plenty of "unwanted" children to go around in foster and adoption clinics. Are we selfish to bring another human into this world when there are plenty that need a home and love?
Yes. Because you want your own children, not someone elses. I am sure there is a child who needs a parent out there who would be the perfect child with the right adults to motivate and take care of them. My best friend as a child was adopted.
There will always be children in this world. But is is selfish to bring 3 or 4 or more into this already over-populated world? Each person has a carbon count that affects climate change and in effect changes our ability to sustain life on Earth.
I have 4 Amazing children,I pride my self on being their Mother, Teacher, Mentor and friend. I think that my 12 year old son is the Nicest boy with a heart of gold. He will grow to be a Wonderful man! If you can do right by those children then NO!

and your point is? there are also many poor people who raise their kids awesomely. it doesn't take money to give your child a good life, it takes love and caring.
I'm glad your world is amazing and full of laughter :) I wish every home had that priviledge. Not always the case (esp. in slums of India or rural Africa). I wish love was abundant too!
Harmony, I am with you. Before ONE has children, it is smart to ascertain the affordability & feasibility of having children. It is totally foolish &unwise to have children when one cannot afford to do so psychologically, emotionally, & f
