If, in your heart, you want to have a baby, have a baby. Nobody was ever evicted because they had to buy diapers. You'll manage.

The world is harsher than it once was, true; but raise your child with values and kindness, because good people make the world a better place, too.

I thought I knew what love was until I had my children. Boy, I didn't know a thing.

Yes, there is worry, and fear, and guilt, and days when you wonder what the hell you were thinking. But then there's the love you have for your children. And you know what? It's really cool to be loved "best of all" just because you're Mom. It's also so nice to know that your mere presence can comfort.

It's not all intellectual stuff, biological stuff or financial stuff. It's much, much deeper.
