Always it gave me a pang that my children had no lawful claim to a name.
Harriet Ann Jacobs
I think while all mothers deal with feelings of guilt, working mothers are plagued by guilt on steroids!
I wanted to escape so badly. But of course I knew I couldn't just give up and leave school. It was only when I heard my mom's voice that I came out of my hiding place.
I was a brownie for a day. My mom made me stop. She didn't want me to conform.
I was always at peace because of the way my mom treated me.
