“What If You Change Your Mind?”
OK, fine, I’ll bite on this one and feed the troll. Quite frankly I’ll never change my mind as I have felt the same way about children and not wanting them since I was a little kid myself (I never in my life have wanted children), but just for grins and giggles let’s say for whatever reason I *DID* change my mind. What would I do?
Well, the first option many would suggest is vasectomy reversal, but that definitely isn’t happening. I’ve already subjected my junk to enough trauma for a lifetime, I don’t need any more. Besides, vasectomy reversal is ridiculously expensive and only works about half the time anyway, so it’s an expensive yet not very realistic option. Strike that.
Rather, I see absolutely no reason to add to the ever-growing overpopulation problem myself. There are already way too many children in foster homes, orphanages, or in government custody that need good homes. That’s where I would go. I don’t have the time or desire to care for babies, so I wouldn’t adopt a baby. Everyone wants to adopt babies anyway, and nobody gives a second thought to adopting older children. It works the same way with human babies as it works with pets. The puppies/kittens go fast, the adult dogs/cats usually wind up getting put down because nobody wants them. Sad, but true.
So, in the astronomically small chance I do change my mind, I feel I would be doing the greatest good by adopting an older child instead of having children biologically or adopting a baby, and that’s the route I’d take.
Of course, keep in mind this is a hypothetical situation with a 99.999% chance of never happening, so don’t ever count on it happening. 😉
