I would press that you sound like an amazing candidate for adoption.

My best friend doesn't feel he can bring a child into hte world. He's been adamant about that as long as I've known him and we met in our early teens. He's now in his 40s with two nearly grown adopted children who he adores.
Being able to take his gifted parenting skills to children who were already here suffering was an amazing thing to behold.

If you don't feel right about bearing children-don't. It means you don't have what it takes psychologically to do that. You mgiht have all the abilities to RAISE a child. But that doesn't mean you have the necessary components to bring one into the world and that doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with you. it just is what it is.
But-if you are able, capable and willing to raise a child who someone brought into the world but didn't care for-what an amazing gift that would be....
