Needed: girls, I so need your stories and book reviews! Come on, let's hear those voices of yours!

"When people say "first-mothers" they are speaking chronologically. They do not mean to insinuate that they are first in quality, first in the child's heart, or anything else. And they are not insinuating that the adoptive mother is "second", in any way except chronologically."
