Thanking the women who brought his children into this world

In the New York Post, columnist William McGurn shares some thoughts on Mother’s Day and his appreciation for his wife and the biological mothers of his children.

Mother’s Day is a good day in our house, partly because of the general bonhomie that links us with the many moms in our lives. There’s my wife, the mother of my children. There’s also her mother and my mother, both still with us and adored by their grandchildren.
And in the special recesses of our hearts, there are three more. These are the women who brought our daughters into the world — three women in China whom we have never met and whose names we don’t even know but to whom we owe our family.
