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!

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by to listen to my one year anniversary episode! I cannot believe it has been a year already! But it has. So here we are. I am thankful to everyone who has listened to my shows over the past year. Thank you for telling friends and family. Thank you for helping spread the word as I continue to create awareness for and about the childless not by choice community.


I find myself becoming who I always was, if that makes sense. I mean, the last year has proved that I really am here and alive now, for this. God apparently thinks I am strong enough to do this. I still have my doubts from time to time, but I still cannot put this subject-matter down. I truly am supposed to be doing this, and doing it scared. I'm doing it introspectively, wondering what the future really holds. But I try not to dwell on those questions and thoughts too much. I will just keep going until I am not.


I hope you find the interviews to be a helpful insight into what I've been doing the past one year. I hope you find the interviewees able to give you some insight into me and my platform. Most importantly, I hope the interviews help you to see that I am truly passionate about the life of the childless not by choice woman or man. And if you do not fit that bio, I am sure you know someone who does. So please help me continue spreading the news. I will continue to create content that makes you constantly say, 'wow, I did not know that!' Because that means you are learning, and learning means you are growing. Otherwise what's the point?

We coach Christian artists, putting them on the path to accomplishing what God put on their hearts through music. Many people think they can just pick up a mic and sing, becoming an instant success.

We work with the artist from the basics to advanced, to their first CD; including all the promotion that is required to make it happen.

Many of the artists we have worked with have said they did not know there was so much work involved in having a successful music career, but it was all worth it!

Slim Goodies Foundation Incorporated was founded in 2013. The organization’s

mission is to empower women by providing resources to educate, motivate, and cultivate

healthy lifestyle focusing on the mind, body, and soul. We arrived at the name Slim Goodies because women are all shapes and sizes. Some are Slim but still unhealthy (skinny fat girl) or some are Goodies, women who are considered overweight but maybe healthy internally and working on decreasing their weight.

Each of these categories of women need to make lifestyle changes for a healthier life. Slim Goodies’ assists women on their journey to loving themselves by creating healthy habits spiritually, mentally, and physically. We believe all three areas must be addressed for a balanced life.

Additional organization actives include a monthly phone call, My Body and Me.

Emily Mayne:

Emily is an old family friend who actually grew up with us, in particular with my youngest sister. Our families have been friends since circa 1986. Emily and I resonate for several reasons. Her back ground is to work with the typically marginalized of society. This group encompasses men, but mostly and usually women and children. Emily has been such a great proponent of the 21st Century Hannah Childless not by choice community. And I wanted to high light her today.
