    I managed to stay away from having kids until I was 40 then met the lady of my dreams, we married and been happy ever since. Sounds sweet, but she had 2 pre-teens already, both with mental issues but I loved her took her on all in, after 5 years we had our own son, recently turned 19 and he's a chip off the old block.

    Life took hold, unpredictible shit, one teen ended up in care another disappeared off the planet (still missing years later) but a couple of years ago the one in care had a baby, of course he can't keep her. Enter social services to grill me & the missus for 12 months to ensure we take care of her, which we now do.

    The poppet has just turned 2 and we love every day with her, yes it's hard work and not as expensive as the scaremongers might say so I guess I'm just saying roll with what life throws at you, if you can handle the fun and joy kids give you it's worth the hassle coz tbh we're here to look after them and there's nothing I would rather do (than another mix and dig through a box of albums lol)
