DESCRIPTION:  The birth of a child is a beautiful event.  For many women this experience comes easily, but for others it is elusive.  Even with the latest fertility technology, pregnancy is sometimes hard to achieve or maintain.  Some of my neighbors and friends have had multiple miscarriages, stillborns, and even false pregnancies.  After being married for 13 years, my husband and I became parents of a wonderful daughter through adoption.  While waiting to adopt a second child, we discovered our first pregnancy.  God blessed us with another daughter and later, a third.  These experiences prompted me to express the myriad of emotions related to becoming a mother.  Each word elicits its own semantic response.  How do you respond to these words about being empty (m. t.) or full?
