If you were a reader of my blog last year, you probably remember how I feel about Mother's Day. It's always been a difficult day, because to me, being a mother is raising a child, not giving birth to one. It's as if I was half a mother - genetically, I was, but in practice, I wasn't.
There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child - and an instinct to make any child who needs her love, her own. ~Robert Brault
