The occasional regret of Sotomayor

In her upcoming biography, Justice Sonia M. Sotomayor writes that she occasionally feels regret over one title she has never had: mother.

According to the Associated Press, Sotomayor writes in “My Beloved World,” which will be released in English and Spanish next month, that decision not to have or adopt children was based in part on the fact that she is diabetic, a condition she’s had since childhood. One several occasions during her life, she writes according to the AP, the disease caused her to lose consciousness and be found by a college roommate, a client, and even a friend’s dog. But, she writes, such episodes were never frequent and have been rare in the last decade.

Sotomayor is expected to start making press appearances to promote the book soon, including an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” next month.
