I wish this sort of article would be required reading at every abortion clinic and crisis pregnancy center. Excellent take on topic.

Thank you for pointing out all the wonderful aspects of a baby's birth. I loved your title and all the information you shared in such few words.

Fantastic! I am so pleased to read this, because I tried to do the same sort of poem but couldn't get it right - and you nailed it with this beautiful account of the journey that is pregnancy. Thanks for bringing a smile to my day.
