Regretting past decisions

I had an abortion many, many years ago and never really thought about it until the last few years when I see my friends with their grandchildren and realize that could be me. I never really wanted a child but I think I would like a grandchild. I really am obsessing over it. I'm suddenly regretting a decision I made so long ago. Can anyone help me?

I think we have all done things that later on down the road haunt us. There isn't really anything you can do about the past so move forward. Have you thought about maybe volunteering at a children's home or something so you can be around kids (but still get to leave when you get tired)?
