This post grew out of my comment to Malvika Kalra‘s post of this article in the Vegans in India facebook group. I thought I’d expound on my thoughts here, and share this link instead of posting a longer comment.
I have been privileged to have two wonderful people I call my kids. But if I was really thinking clearly that time, I wouldn’t have made them. This is not regret. I love my children, but I would have been just as happy to adopt a child with whom I could express my maternal instincts.
