I still can remember the day my daughters were born and that love that I had for them when I first seen and held them..I never thought I could ever love someone like I did when my daughters were born....I still look at them and have that love for them it's like it never went away it just got stonger...What about you? Do you rememeber the day your child /children was born and the love you had for them? Was it the stongest love you have ever had or could imagine?

I love my son more every day. It's kind of funny. When he was born I told my mom that I never knew I could love anyone so much. And it just keeps getting bigger.

The love that I experienced with having my children can never be compared to anything else. I to still feel it so strongly for them. I love others so much but in different ways. Nothing will ever compare to the way I feel for them.

I had always thought of different types of love as being roughly equal: romantic love, love for friends, etc. I hadn't really experienced "love for family" very much because of my own messed-up childhood. But I always figured every type of love was roughly equal in the end... The love I have for my child surpasses anything I have ever experienced. Not only just after he was born, even while I was carrying him, especially when I was meditating and felt I could feel his spirit with me as well as his body, this wave of love for him would just wash over me. It's been that way every day, even when I am angry with him, even when he's being a pain, even when he's not sleeping several hours after his bedtime or when he's trying to use me as a chew toy, that love just never quiets down or goes away. He's 15-months-old now, and he is still the most beautiful sight in the entire world to me, and I can't imagine how that could ever change. It probably wouldn't amaze me quite as much if I believed my own parents loved me, but they never gave me any reason to believe so. In fact, having my own child made me understand even less how anyone could hurt a child in the ways I was hurt as a child, and it makes me more determined than ever that my own child will never experience that, and will always know he is loved.
