Favorite quotes

  • Adoption is like a wall of truth built with bricks of lies. One who loves the lie will see the wall, but not the bricks. Source: unknown.
  • Raising a child does not make you a parent. Source: unknown.
  • Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself… Though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. Source: Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931). Taken from the 1923 book “The Prophet”.
