When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced that they were pregnant with their second child, I was thrilled for them. From her many interviews, she revealed that it was difficult for them to conceive.
I do not dislike Kim or Kanye.
They intrigue me.
I admit, I would love to have their money and fame but I do enjoy my own life. It’s nice to dream a little, right?
It is reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West opted to use IVF gender selection to have boy embryos implanted. Why is this a huge topic? Is it because it’s Kimye?!
What about the couples who adopt a child and want certain traits, such as a baby or young child? Certain sex? Certain race? What about the couples who give their child up for adoption because they had a disabled child? Isn’t that choosing what child they raise? On the other hand, there are people who choose to adopt disabled children.
Are the couples being selective like Kimye?
I cannot speak from personal experience about this subject. My husband and I have one child. I would love to have another child. It would be fun to have a little girl. Watching my son and husband together, they have a special bond. There are times when our son wants to hang out with his dad. He likes to do what his dad does, such as play on the computer or play the same games his dad does. I would love that kind of bond. I would be selective with the toys I bought her; I would choose toys that I played with as a child.
Inside, I know that is probably not the best idea to have another child. Our son has Autism. He can be a handful. We have to watch him constantly. We have to be aware of our surroundings, his behavior and adapt. If he is about to have a meltdown, we have to be ready to leave the situation.
Don’t get me wrong, if we were to get pregnant, we would embrace it. It would be amazing but we are not actively trying.
What are your thoughts on gender selection?
