"Children are a gift in a myriad of ways. They bring joy even in the midst of heartaches; they give added direction to the lives of their parents. Children, who are the fruit of love and meaningful commitment, are a cause of love and meaning."—USCCB, Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan, 2009

Below are some resources offered by the USCCB for and about children. Visit also the Parents and Parenting page.
