“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

"We conceive a child in our minds and hearts. During the first trimester of our "pregnancy," we prove our parenting fitness to assorted officials. And then we wait. And wait. Like elephants, our gestation period averages about 22 months."
