babies

First, Hetha shared this post with me today and while it'll be part of next month's Roundtable, it deserves a read now too. It's unconscionable that children grow up in these conditions.

Second, the rest of my heart and soul is sitting over at Mad's today.

We are all mothers here.

wow, jen, that post by eileen is staggering. (thanks for sharing today, as depending on the day, I sometimes can't read all the Just Posts I want to.)

good thing mad has a big house, because I think the lot of us are hovering about wishing we could be useful.

Wow. That post breaks my heart.

And our Mad. Yes, yes. I am there, too.

I've been thinking of Mad today too. I may have never met her, but you are exactly right. We are mothers.
