A lot of my friends will probably be surprised by this - because it's not something that I talk about a lot. Or at all.
I hope one day to start a family; I would like to have a child, and raise my child with someone who loves me. I don't talk about it a lot with my friends. The circumstances of my life do not really allow this at this time, so I have chose to keep things quiet.
Why talk about things that will probably never come to pass?
But, I hope one day to have a little girl. Maybe it's my own difficulties with my mother that led me to want a daughter. But I hope to raise a daughter who will be good and kind. I hope she will be courageous, and adventurous. I hope she will learn that it is okay to make mistakes - our mistakes are rich learning experience. I want my daughter to know how to love herself, even as she learns to love and protect other people.
I have even picked the name for her.
I am not the most patient person in the world, but I know I will love with all my heart. I know I will be a good mom, because I really, truly care - and that's what's really important
