"Anyone can have one kid. But going from one kid to two is like going from owning a dog to running a zoo." - P. J. O'Rourke

Just Passing Them Along

I read a couple of great quotes today that I thought I would pass along...

Natural Child: Any child who is not artificial. 
Real Parent: Any parent who is not imaginary. 
Your Own Child: Any child who is not someone else's child. 
Adopted Child: A natural child, with a real parent, who is all your own. ~Rita Laws, PhD.
I love that quote!

And on a different topic regarding the biological difference between races of people...
 "Genome variation research does not support the existence of human races.”  - Neil Risch

Race is a social concept, it's not a scientific one.
We're all part of a continuum. I am 100 percent certain that if we could determine the genome of everybody on this planet, there would be no bright line that distinguished this social concept of one race vs. another.      - J. Craig Venter 

And there you have some food for thought....
