If you cannot naturally have a child, take it as a sign that you should adopt. Single parent's often have tough times raising children, and I don't know how healthy it is to not have a male/female figure in life. So to me saving a child is better than brining more in to a potentially chaotic situation.
That's senseless. "Signs", as you put it, are completely open to personal interpretation - in other words, they're meaningless. If you're born nearsighted, is that a sign that you should never drive? Of course not; it means you get glasses. I agree that choosing to adopt a child is an admirable thing to do, but that doesn't make having a child of your own bad. As for the chaotic situations: if you're not prepared to care for a child of your own, how would you be any better prepared to care for an adopted child? Other than a vague "it's against god's plan", why are you against in vitro fertilization? It's no better or worse than simply getting pregnant normally; it just takes more effort.
The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.
