I have no photo to submit and I don’t have any children of my own as of yet, but I just wanted to say that I think that motherhood is one of the most amazing things that a woman’s body can do. It is horrific that society has made “beauty” so important that anyone who can’t live up to those standards is made to feel so shamed and ugly. I am a firm believer in women’s rights and that women should have careers, however the true “purpose” of our bodies is to make babies and feed them. It is the most incredible and beautiful miracle that I know of. Our bodies are able to give life to a new person and feed that person from ourselves. It is too bad that our culture lost the veneration of childbirth and mother hood that so many of the ancient cultures practiced. Every woman who has labored to bring a new life into this world should see her self as the truly wonderous miracle that she is and her body as the amazing vehicle that allows the human race to continue. I think you are all the most beautiful and strong women I have ever seen.
