Hello there, my name is Civilla Morgan. Are you childless not by choice? Do you know someone who is?
After years of hoping, and waiting, even attempting on two occasions to adopt; I realized I would never have children. It was a difficult time for me, but I decided that I could not be the only woman on this planet trying to figure out how to deal with my situation.
You see, I was not willing to pretend I was OK when I really was not. I wanted children and I was not going to be having any. I heard all types of comments down through the years from acquaintances and strangers alike. Some meant well, some wanted me to be sure I recognized they had something I would never have.
But through it all, as much as my heart hurt, I also knew there were women worldwide who were going through the same or similar circumstances and feelings. And on top of that, some women are being physically and mentally mistreated.
So I created Childless not by Choice aka 21st Century Hannah. A platform where I speak to and encourage women who are childless not by choice. Check out my episodes, and please tell your friends and family; especially those who are childless not by choice. For details on all things childless not by choice, visit me at www.childlessnotbychoice.net.
Childless not by Choice is the story of an entire segment of society that is largely ignored and misunderstood; hiding in plain sight. I lived that story. I am living the story. I was tested and chose to turn my test into a testimony.
Childless not by Choice is about the woman who wanted but could not have children. Of course, I invite everyone to listen. This is a message for everyone because we are all living life, though not the same life. When we realize this, our minds will open up to the realization that we can treat each other with understanding, empathy, and grace.
