What lasts forever,,,

I know this blog is closed for now...

But I was just watching Brothers & Sisters and heard the most touching words! Well touching for me of course, it hit close to home.

Background: Kitty has been trying to get pregnant in any way medically possible, in vain. Her husband is proposing to move on to other options like adoption or a surrogate mother and Kitty feels like she can't let go of this need to be pregnant. She goes and visits her sister Sarah and they talk about it. She remembers an incident that took place when Sarah was 7 months pregnant:

Kitty: I remember touching your stomach when we went back to my apartment and - Cooper was practically doing somersaults. And I just thought, how weird, and how beautiful. Now, I don't know how I'm supposed to stop wanting that.

Sarah: Kitty, you remember the somersaults. I remember the heartburn. You know what Cooper remembers? Nothing. There are no guarantees. In the end, the only thing that matters is that there's a child. And that lasts forever.
