alot of money. I would like to know how can I have a child. It hurts just to know that since you have no money you can't have a baby.

Hi misslmc25,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER.
I'm confused. Did you have your tubes tied, or blocked purposely not realizing you later would want children?
If you are under the care of a doctor, is there anything they suggest, or resources available for subsidizing the cost for having infertility treatments (for example IVF)? I believe insurance may pay for part of the cost, and some charities may give money to women needing help paying for infertility treatments. I believe "octomom" used this kind of help to have all her babies.
When it comes down to it, even if you can't have your own, a Mom is a Mom. There are a lot of children out there who need supporting and loving homes. To that end, other options might include adoption or foster care. Here is a link to get you started on finding foster care and adoption resources in your area, including support groups:
There also are a few groups on EmpowHER that may interest you in this area, check it out!
