    So true Bobby, some children these days though are conceived in test tubes, which must make choosing father or mother's day cards a tad difficult :) (Report) Reply

    Short and sweet Robert but very much to the point. I was reared by Mother
    and Father and feel very fortunate to have had both. I wrote three poems
    on PH devoted to those two loving people. Number one Mother, My mother, My friend
    and Dear old Dad. Love it! (Report) Reply

    Freedom from religion is a myth
    But birth is a reality
    Mother is Genuine and
    Father is a belief (Report) Reply
