If you are debating whether or not to have only one child, you might find the following article helpful.  The author talks to three adults, discussing the pros and cons of them growing up as an only child.

What is your biggest positive and negative about having one child?

My husband and I are unsure if we'll try for any more kids if we ever get pregnant with the first. I think we are leaning towards having just one, it took me long enough to decide to do at least that. I guess it's something we'll have to wait to talk about, see how we do as parents. It is nice to see artciles like this one to know that it's not a bad thing.
