    Very interesting listen. Clears a lot of questions one has when planning a family. But so true how so many people struggle to have kids and some just pop them out at a blink of an eye.
    The costs are not always affordable and sad that those whom deserve to be parents, may never be because of the cost. What options do they then have? Yes adoption is an option, but not the same as being your own flesh and blood.
