    commitment Quotes

    I think every child deserves a family as loving and committed as mine. Because the sense of family comes from the commitment we make to each other to work through the hard times so we can enjoy the good ones. It comes from the love that binds us; that's what makes a family. My family is just as real as yours.

And it is going to get hard and you're going to want to quit sometimes, but it'll be colored by who you are, and more by who you want to be.
