How do you let go of a dream of having kids?
I'm 41 years old (will be 42 in the end of March) and I'm not in a relationship right now.
I don't drive so how would get the child to the doctor or to school?
Yes I'm a woman
To user WinterRose: My ex boyfriend and I were trying to have a baby before we broke up. We were going through fertility tests and treatments.

I don't think you have to let go of the dream.
If you're committed to having kids and are in a good place financially/mentally, you could consider adoption. You don't need to be part of a couple to raise kids, although it would likely make things easier. Still, there are a lot of single parents out there kicking ***! You could be one of them, to a child that really needs a home. :)
There's also foster care if you're unsure if you want to fully commit to adoption. Or, if you wanted to have a biological connection to your child, you could get a sperm donor (assuming you're a woman). Lots of options!

You start thinking about adopting one.

It is unlikely but possible for women to have kids in their 40s. At age 40, a woman's odds of conceiving after 3 months of trying are around 7 percent.
Men can have kids no matter their age.
