i came across my original birth certificate the other day.  i mean the one that was probably given to my parents when i was born.  i remember when i met my mother she told me that my father said, “Another six foot tall bitch” when he heard i was the longest baby on record.  of course, you can’t believe everything you hear but it sounds like something he’d say.  so many studies suggest that abused children go on to abuse their own children, of course we probably never hear about those who commit to do anything but.  where are those studies?  the one about the resilience of children who beat the odds, and go on to be amazing parents and outstanding role models?  ~ sxm
