Having a baby is a wonderful experience!!! However, it is a life time commitment not just a few years!!! Having a baby is great when you are married, able to support him or her, and love the person you are with. Ask almost any single mom any age would she do things differently, and she will probably say yes. Being in a good, loving relationship is the key as well as being able to provide all the necessities babies need such as formula, diapers, medicines, diaper cream, etc. Babies cost a lot to care for and require attention 24 hours a day. Enjoy life and if you really have a void without a child right now, seek a friend or family who will listen to you and be there for you. I started babysitting at 12 years old and I love children, but having your own children is a whole different experience. There are many great times and there are the times your child is sick all night and you are lying by his bed all night while he is sick, or when he breaks a bone, or when your little girl cuts her knee and needs to be rushed to the hospital late at night for stitches. Please enjoy life and get your education, job, and fall in love, and then you will enjoy a littlle bundle of joy so much more. Good luck.
