This quote is so true. That is just what I thought of about Amy ( who is now a Mom ) and each one of my kids as they came along. Most of her early years was when I first came out with my abuse and began to get counseling. It was some of the toughest years of my life...but so worth it because I knew I had children who needed to be protected. I also knew they needed to understand how to protect themselves, that is what gave me strength and courage when times got tough. Parenthood isn't easy, but oh soooo worth it!
