What would it take for you to change your mind on parenthood?
“He wanted to be a father. … And he wasn’t going to accept ‘no’ and still be in a relationship with me.”
— Adrienne Lindholm
Growing up, Adrienne Lindholm was dead set against having children. She didn’t like kids, and she felt that parenthood would force her to give up the things she loved most in life.
But as time went on, her husband became more and more determined to start a family. Eventually, she was faced with an ultimatum: have kids, or lose her relationship.
Adrienne wrote a memoir called It Happened Like This, which chronicles her life in Alaska and her dilemma surrounding motherhood. She joins us on this episode to talk about it.
