One day I was struck by this phrase: "To not be a mother is to miss out on half of the world." The words are Marguerite Duras'.

I am not a mother. Have I missed out on half of the world? I decided to do some research, to try to come as close as possible to this experience that I will never truly have. I want to know the other half of this world holds.
