What can $100,000 buy you?
I can think of a million things I would do with that amount of money, and none of them would involve this shift towards our entitled society, that’s for sure!
After recent news of a couple spending $100,000 to guarantee the sex of their baby, and reading through endless comments on the internet, I can’t help but wonder…is the sex of a child THAT important?
One comment hit home the most when reading through one couples story: “You feel incomplete as a mother until you have a girl,” says the four-months-pregnant computer database developer, Rose Costa who is now expecting her third child – a girl due to gender selection!
REALLY? I have 2 gorgeous boys and I can honestly say that I have NEVER considered myself at a loss because I don’t have a little girl. What would be missing? Frilly skirts and some pink decor perhaps? Just plain sexist and non justified to say the least. What about a bond, health or a unique family dynamic that is shared with your family and yours alone? Isn’t that worth more than $100,000?
I am starting to believe that society has shifted towards attaining whatever is wanted in the moment and any given time without actually considering that a heart cannot be fulfilled with material things- even if it is a baby.
What do you think? Would you spend $100,000 to guarantee the sex of your baby?
