Gender disappointment

I am the mother of two boys, and it’s not in the cards for us to have a third child.

While I am grateful that I have two wonderful, healthy little boys, I can’t quite let go of the disappointment of not having a little girl. It is hard for me to come to terms with the fact that I’ll never experience a mother-daughter relationship.

In truth, if I could have a guarantee that my third child would be a girl, I’d go for it, but I don’t want a third boy so I wouldn’t run that risk (and I live in a country where it’s illegal to do gender selection of any kind).

I’m struggling to see which self-coaching tools to apply here. How do I feel better about this circumstance?

Thank you!
