    I like the last one. I am also fond of this quote: “Any woman can give birth but it takes a special pereson to be a real MOTHER.”

  3. Here’s another one for you:“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” ~Elizabeth Stone

  4. Lots of great quotes. The 2nd one scares me to death! I think that is so much of why my step-daughters are the way they are. It is so frustrating when I see the same behaviors as we see in their mother!
