    • A baby, lovingly planned, wanted and cared for… I’m afraid I don’t see the problem Jean. And please dont bring up the “children need a mother and a father” or you denigrate hundreds of thousands of children who are bought up in single parent families for a multitude of reasons. One of those children is now the Pesident of the USA. A child needs to be warm, clothed fed, sheltered and loved. I have no doubt there will be plenty of male influences in these children’s lives.

  4. NOICE! congratulations Penny not only are you an inspiring politician but a loving parent to your little girls. I wish you, your partner and little girls a life filled with love and happiness!
