The Goddess of Childless Mothers

This work belongs to the Imperfect Gods series. We always turn to gods for comfort and mercy. However, this is a goddess that – instead of comforting us – induces a sense of empathy and needs us to comfort her. When we turn to her, we find deficiencies. She is a goddess, who wishes to have a child, but has no womb to carry the fetus in it. She is ready to nurse multiple infants, but her dream is never going to come true.
