Childless not by Choice

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 

Thank you!

21st Century Hannah Listeners, hello!

Thanks for coming back for another episode of 21st Century Hannah! I so appreciate your taking the time to listen. I especially want to thank those of you who are repeat listeners. I am truly humbled.

I hope you are telling your friends and family about the show, and feel free to share the show to your social media followers! I would appreciate that!

In this episode I ask ‘about the children?’ There are millions of children worldwide who have no one to protect them. In fact, in some cases, they have been abandoned by their very own parents. For many of us, this is an unbelievable scenario to imagine! But in many parts of the world, it is the unfortunate norm. Partly because of unbelievably sad situations and decisions. And partly because of ingrained societal beliefs. Beliefs many people around the world may find arcane.

But we cannot approach these belief systems from a place of superiority. We need to chip away at beliefs that leave human beings in peril, in a way that makes the owners of these thoughts realize that we are all human first.  We need to spread the word globally, that every human being wants and deserves to live in dignity; from the youngest to the oldest human.  We need to put ourselves in other people’s shoes on a regular basis.

So, in this episode: Have you ever wondered what about the children worldwide who have no protector. Have you ever seen pictures of abandoned toddlers and young children in countries around the world? I have a Pinterest board called My Heart.  Representative of the planet on which we live, some of the pictures are of well taken care of children who seem happy. But there are also heartbreaking pictures of malnourished and in some cases, abandoned children.

This should not be our world, still, in 2016. I believe physically, spiritually, emotionally connecting two groups of people together worldwide would be a wonderful idea. What if those of us who are childless not by choice decided to do something.  What if we did something to acknowledge the fact that there are children parentless not by choice. It sounds so simple right?

It could be anything from actually volunteering to help with this segment of society, to simply praying for these children on a regular basis. Pray without ceasing, you know?

When we help others, we think less of ourselves, our circumstances. And trust me when I tell you that prayer is just as important as doing. What do you think? Tell me, I want to know.  My contact information is below.                                           

Until next time! Bye!
