Christina Garcia, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from Arizona, says she is happy to have found a group on Facebook of others who share her experience of being a “childless Mormon.”
According to explanation at https://www.facebook.com/groups/childlessmormons, the page “has been set up by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints who, through various reasons, are living life without children.”
“We started out as a small group of women and have grown to a group of friends who all support each other. We have all had different experiences. We reach out from different countries and cover a wide range of ages, situations, and acceptance.”
Christina she appreciates the resources on the page and encourages others who are childless to see what it has to offer.
“We have come together to support each other through this earthly trial. We know there are thousands of women struggling that just don’t know where to turn. We know Heavenly Father has other plans for all of us and we want people to know that it’s okay,” Christina says.
The site invites visitors: “Please make yourself feel welcome – read our blog posts, use our resources, and feel free to join with us. We know what it feels like to know you won’t have children in this life, to hear those words, but we also know how to find acceptance and even joy in that circumstance.”
