My husband and I have been married for a couple of years and have been trying to have a baby the entire time. I turn 40 this year and have given up on having children. I don’t want to try to conceive anymore and am almost to the point of wanting to actively prevent pregnancy. I know what the Church teaches about birth control. And I know that women are regularly having children well into their 40’s, but I don’t want to be one of those women! I figure that if God wanted me to have children, he would have brought my husband and me together ten years ago when I had a better chance at fertility.
Please, pray for me.
