Childless at Christmas
For many of us being childless at Christmas (or if you’re in the USA, the Holidays) is the hardest thing we have to face.
You might want to hide away until January but we both know that’s not possible.
What you can do instead is to prepare yourself so you lessen the impact.
In the blogs below I’ve gathered as many resources as I can from both childless bloggers & others sharing tips and suggestions on how to get through when you’re childless at Christmas.
