    A Family Is A Family Is A Family - HBO Jan 31st, 7pm

    I noticed the banner ad. I would link to it but I can't get the link because it is embedded in flash. icon_sad.gif So I will leave the link out of this thread, just refresh the browser until the banner comes up so that realjock will get paid for it.

    I just caught the last few minutes of Oprah and Rosie was on it. Oprah asked people to watch thic documentary with their children. YES!!!


    after you click on the banner....go here...

    Though Rosie says she's always wanted to be a mom, she was fearful of what would happen once her children reached age 10—the age she was when her mother died. "For a long time, I had been telling myself: 'Well, I was not parented after the age of 10. I'm not going to know what to do when they get older than 10,'" she says.

    Looking back, Rosie realizes she's been wrong all along. After her mother died and her father was too grief-stricken to care for his children, Rosie says women who lived in her Long Island neighborhood stepped in as surrogate mothers.

    "I was raised with love, compassion and grace by women who were not connected to me by biological means, and that's exactly what I ended up doing," she says.

    [quote]"[I want them to know] they can survive challenges, even unexpected ones that are terrifically sad," she says. "And that change is inevitable, and you can always survive it. … There is always something new in the future, and you don't know what it's going to be, but it's got the potential for tremendous joy."

    That is an incredibly important thing to teach children.
