Many Parents Want Two Children - But The Extra Ones Are Conceived By Mistake. What Do You Say?
I'd say if more people were honest, most are conceived by mistake.
In today's world, we're all about control. Our jobs, our spare time, our families, our homes, our finances--you name it.
To say that a couple wants only two and conceives three, well, that's the way it goes sometimes and be happy with it.
If they were that adamant about only having two kids, then perhaps abstinence would have been the better choice.
The extra child may not have been planned, but no child is a mistake. Children give us an opportunity to extend our influence beyond ourselves. That's a priceless blessing!
My second child was a shocker but any child is a blessing. And that's all they need to know. Mistake is maybe a word I wouldn't use when telling him how he came about.
I agree with you swtwin2....a blessing rather than a mistake. The child was meant to take part in your life's journey and meant to have his own.
