For years being a mother has been my aspiration but it's looking less and less likely to happen. Now I'm wondering what to do next. My career has been well scuppered by infertility and at the moment I'm working really hard on my temporary contract but as I'm on UPS I don't know if I'll ever have a permanent contract again. So if you aren't/don't want to be a mother or father, what are you doing or planning to do with your life instead? If you are a mother or father, what do you think you would have done if you couldn't be a parent?
