Vol Fan and I do not have children. This is definitely not a choice that we made. But after years and years and years of trying and doctors and tests resulting in no babies, we decided to forgo any more testing or 'trying'. If we had children, then it was meant to be. If not, then that was meant to be as well.
For years, we both struggled with emotions when Mother's Day and Father's Day rolled around. We soon started taking that day to celebrate us in an effort to stop the descent into self-pity, etc.
Now 22 years into our marriage, we have come to accept our childless state. And have tried to embrace it and the freedom it provides us.
Vol Fan scored 126 and I scored 127. We will not talk about the times that I popped the ball straight up in the air and I returned it to its original starting spot with that swing ignored. We also will not talk about the time that I was in a sand trap and had hit the ball 5 times before picking it up and tossing it up on the green. No, we will not talk about that.
