Praise For This I Believe: On Motherhood

'It is a one-of-a-kind connection. The mother-child bond is not necessarily a product of the birth process. It is a product of love and caring, time and commitment, patience and teaching, enjoying the good times and working through the hard times.'
*Beth Beery

'I believe in calling your mother. No matter where you are, no matter what you are doing, a phone call to your mother will make the world seem less daunting and help you feel stronger.'
*Suzanne Biemiller

'I did not give birth to Trenton, but I love him as a mother would. I believe that being a mother is more than biology, being a mother is a state of mind.'
*Jennifer Smith

'When my daughter was born, one of my many fears was that raising a child with Down syndrome would diminish my experience of parenthood, that this would be a less joyful kind of mothering. It is not.'
*Beth Crawford

'There are few things that have been around since the beginning of time. Birth is the beginning of time. For me, it is a great metaphor for all that is still mysterious and magnificent in the world.'
*Geeta Maker-Clark, MD
