FC: Family- together we have it all
1: Grandchildren are life's compensation for growing older
2: Though miles lie between us...
3: we are never far apart!!
4: Cousins are our first forever friends
8: A sibling is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost
12: The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.
13: Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man
17: The great gift of family life is to be intimately acquainted with people you might never even introduce yourself to, had life not done it for you. ~Kendall Hailey
