really liked it
Read in December, 2008

I longed to be a mother. I wanted children, lots of them. I have four of the most beautiful people you could ever meet. Motherhood is hard! Taking care of a newborn is difficult. There were times I wished the children would just go away but I never thought of leaving. Some people never have children because they can't find it in their hearts to share and give of themselves. Some walk away from their children. Some women abort. We form opinions and judge. Are they selfish? A bad person? A bad mother? A book is a story of events unfolding allowing the reader to form her opinion. I can't imagine a guy reading this book. It's a chick book. The movie "The Good Mother" made me feel the same way this book did. I don't agree with what the characters did but that wasn't why I read it. I just wanted a story about people and their life experiences.
