“I believe in helping existing life!!!”

Kayla, 30, USA

I’m childfree by choice and circumstance! I had a brain tumour when I was little, and my sister was born with a congenital heart defect. Both these conditions also show up in our family tree, and it isn’t worth taking the chance to have children with either of these medical conditions.

With where our world is at, I’m childfree by choice as well! I would not want to bring a child into this world as it is now, but I’m open to adoption in the future. I believe in helping existing life!!!

There are billions of people already here, and not enough resources to take care of them. I didn’t realise that I shouldn’t have children til my twenties. Having children seems to be something girls are programmed to have in their minds as a possibility for their life.

I feel really good living a childfree life, because I went to college to work with kids and am currently a nanny. I get all the joys of kids without all of the worries. I’m also able to focus on my mental and physical health, and able to have solitary time whenever I want.
