Have an autographed copy from Dr. Stone...

Very profound!

The book is a true story.  Dr. Stone is a Professor at Fordham University - LC


Not from the above book...

"…Someone once described the joy and anxiety of parenthood as the equivalent of having your heart outside of your body all the time, walking around. With their very first cry, this most precious, vital part of ourselves, our child, is suddenly exposed to the world, to possible mishap or malice, and every parent knows there’s nothing we will not do to shield our children from harm. And yet we also know that with that child’s very first step and each step after that, they are separating from us, that we won’t — that we can’t always be there for them."

- From Obama’s speech in Newtown, CT

This is the person's exact words:

"Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."
― Elizabeth Stone
