I totally see what you're saying. It does baffle me (even with how strongly I love my boys) that someone would PREFER a boy to a girl. But it also makes me feel really good, that not everyone feels sorry for me and my family makeup.
These days, as my GD wanes, I feel really sad when someone is horrified by the thought of a boy. I know why they're feeling what they feel, and I felt every bit of it myself, but it makes me so sad.
Mom to two perfect, adorable, amazing boys!
