Now that Melissa and I are getting ready to have a baby, I started thinking about, why do people have babies?
I don't want to sway you too much with my opinion, so if you think you are gonna be swayed, just post.
Is it just our nature? Do we want to better the world, or help out somehow? Why not adopt? Or better yet, go found a school or develop a training program for those with lower socio-economic status and benefit a lot more than just one person. It's crazy, everyone has babies! We know there are countless children around the world in need of a mom and dad. I guess I just can't get over how *easy it is to have a baby.
Gospel aside, I think in the end it's mostly because people want to have something to do (satisfy curiosity) and learn how great at being a parent they are (selfishness/pride?). I think people get kind of bored and then out of curiosity want to see what a little, in our case, aaron or melissa, looks like and acts like. But I'm curious to know what you think on this. (I took the religious factor out of this question so we could think about people all over the world... )
