Boo & Maddie : My Story

Lins hosts a weekly column on being childfree at her website, Boo & Maddie. Today, I tell my story of being childless. I am nowhere close to saying I am childfree, for that has the connotation of choice, and the one thing about being childless is the choicelessness of it. But I am there saying I am childless not by choice and I am more than that. This has been empowering, allowing me to make childlessness a part of my life and stopping it from smothering my identity.

Thank you to Rach for allowing me to write about our story. Read the full story at Boo & Maddie, Andy’s Story
