LOVE this piece! Great work! Your cousin is awesome. “Why would you have kids if you didn’t want them?” would be my exact response. As a parent, I am continually amazed (and angered) and all the parents who try to talk other people into having kids. Ideally, nobody should have kids who doesn’t totally want to.
Beautiful writing. I definitely want to link to it in an upcoming piece of mine!
