An option that is often used by infertile couples whose IVF treatments have failed or by gay women who wish to be parents. Nonetheless, in the last two decades it seems that it has also become an option for financially secured single professional heterosexual women in their 30’s and 40’s who feel they are ready to be mothers. I see nothing wrong with a single woman who is financially and emotionally ready to be a parent and feels she can provide that child with a proper upbringing. It is not easy being a parent, let alone a single one, but there are plenty of parents out there that by choice or not or due to life circumstances have raised children alone and have done fantastic jobs. My aunt and my godfather are living proof of that. Let’s be realistic not everyone is meant to find that so called Mr or Mrs. “Right”. He or she may or may not around the corner and I see that as No Reason ( Not a valid one) as to give up one’s dream of having a child. As long as one is financially and emotionally established I see it as a perfectly good venue to realize the dream of motherhood. I myself would consider it if I feel I am ready to be a mother and the “right” person has not come along. I WILL NOT give up my dream of having a child simply because So called “Mr Right” hasn’t shown up on time or may not show up at all.
