Do the things that you want in life, get into the arena and try and fail. It can end at any moment, so chase those dreams and desires! We only have one life, so don’t waste it being fearful of what you genuinely want to do in life.

Just because you haven’t found love yet doesn’t mean you have to hold off on your dream of becoming a parent. With so many options available now, you can make your dreams come true as a single person. 

Ancestry tests that are now available open up a whole new option of finding out if those conceived through sperm donations are related. Information kept anonymous in the 70s and 80s is now readily available.
