    Jay, I enjoyed hearing your and Miss Melody Fresh’s stories about growing up without siblings. I grew up as an only child too, but had a cousin like a sister that kept me from feeling isolated and alone. It is so good to know that God selects our families and puts us where we need to be. There are truly advantages in being an only child, as well as a family with many siblings. Great show!

      Nice! I am so glad you enjoyed the discussion with Melody and that you could relate to some of our experiences.

      I agree that God does specifically place us where He knows we will be best suited.

      Yes, there are definitely advantages to both. No doubt about it.

      Thank you for the kind words and for sharing your thoughts with us. I appreciate it more than you know.

      God bless you!
