When I went into labor, my doctor met me outside of the operating room doors.
“I’ve gone ahead and signed off on your tubal”, she told me. “You’ve talked about it your entire pregnancy and I truly believe that you know what you’re doing.”

I’m happy with the ones I’ve got; and if God forbid something happened to one of my children, I wouldn’t want another. No one could replace either of my two little angels. I’ve made the right decision. It was a personal decision that may not be right for everyone, but it was right for me. :)
