    I just want to say that it is a strength to not only know your own heart, strengths, weaknesses etc but to have the courage to follow what you feel is best. It is certainly not our place to judge whether you plan on having children or not!
    For what it’s worth, I feel that your reasons are VERY unselfish and sane ones. You are acting not only in YOUR best interests but more importantly, a child’s best interests. I wish my (half) brother and his girlfriend had thought at the very least about getting treatment for their addiction and mental health issues BEFORE — or even instead of, having my precious nephew. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely ADORE him and so do his parents but this little guy is only 4.5 and has already known way too much stress, fear and confusion.
    I wish others gave as much consideration to such an important decision!

    Elaina, I think you are making a very responsible decision. It is a sad one to have to make but necessary. I totally understand. You are not selfish at all.
