For My Sister...

The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new.


A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them. ~Victor Hugo

Mother's love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. ~Erich Fromm

Parents have the glorious opportunity of being the most powerful influence, above and beyond any other, on the new lives that bless their homes. ~ L. Tom Perry

We can see that the baby is as much an instrument of nourishment for us as we are for him. ~ Polly Berrien Berends
