Inspiring woman

If you could sum up When Children are Wanted in three words, what would they be?

Ms. Sanger's words are so sweet, yet powerful and she has inspired a whole generation to greatness (Dr. Martin Luther King, President Johnson, Senator Clinton, and a host of Hollywood and political elite). Ironic that her gentle ways of influence modeled that of Queen Esther, while her motives (see chapter 9 of her autoboigraphy) were that of Queen Vashti. As a Gemini, I see greatness in each of the queens.

What other book might you compare When Children are Wanted to and why?

Mark 10:13-16. 13And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked them.14But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, “Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.15“Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”16And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. C-SPAN's Mike Wallace interview with Ms. Sanger

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Her gentle manner and sweet voice.
