    Absolutely LOVE CHILDREN they are the real glory of our lives - raising a child from that helpless adorable baby bundle through the angst of adolescence (when they really need us but they'll never admit it) to adulthood when you realize they've become your very best friends - and now they have baby bundles to be loved - There is something SACRED happening all through it (Report) Reply
