Oh, so you're an only child?

So what, your parents decided you were too much of a handful, and decided to stop?

Or you were too wonderful, and decided to stop why they were ahead.

Jennifer was relating this conversation she was having with a sub. teacher today after I spoke about a colleague dealing with an abortion he and his wife chose to have after it became evident the baby would probably be born brain dead. And the type of blasts he's dealing with by well-meaning relatives and people , including the preverbial "it's the will of God."

They have one child now, a son, and will try again, but I got the feeling that they were both wondering if that might be their only child.

And then the questions come on from a society that always assumes you must have wanted it that way. Because who would want just one kid?
