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!

Timeline, 21st Century Hannah, is the name of this episode. Why? Well, it's been on my mind the last few weeks to get my timeline together. I felt like I might have been confusing you about the number of surgeries, at the very least. To be honest, I did not even know if it mattered, if I added the timeline, but why not?

And then as I gathered my records and went through the dates, which lead to the number of surgeries; realizing it was a decade or so of waiting and hoping.  Well, that was an eye-opener. I do not think I realized how long and painful my journey was until I sat down and looked at the timeline. So I am glad I did it. It was a little emotional, but as I always say, if I am going through this so is someone else. And if for nothing else, I want that person or people to be encouraged. I want someone out there to realize it is OK to keep trying. And it is also OK, and important, to know when to move on to another phase of life.  It is important to realize that if she never has the child, she can opt for quality of life and live her best most joyful and relevant life.   

So, if you are a repeat listener, thank you! And if you are a first time listener, I hope you will come back and visit again.

In either case, I hope you are telling your social media followers, your family, and friends! It is greatly appreciated when I hear and see my show is being shared. It means awareness is being created!
