I have scoured the internet for blogs that might help ease my heart in this situation and have found no one talking about Catholic full time working moms who work outside the home, are in their forties using NFP and leaving babies in daycare. It’s like they don’t exist . I just need one to inspire my resolve with their calm acceptance.
My heart hurts when I think that I am obeying God and having children in my forties that I need to give to strangers in daycare to raise. (Please, I understand well meaning folks will offer that I can find a way to stay home, but as of now it is unfortunately not possible).
Is anyone here or does anyone know of any practicing NFP Catholic woman that is around my age 43 with infants (not older children) in daycare? I just feel so alone in this circumstance of being open to life with NFP to honor God, and then give these gifts of children to perfect strangers every day. It seems so wrong when I’m trying to do something right.
Any encouragement on how I can accept this is ok is appreciated. I wish so much I could stay home but I never could for all 3.
