Thank you for your answer.

I think that peldaño is the best for me because I already know that word, although for me it meant lost link.

But I can see how it could refer to a stepping stone.

Stepping Stone

List Members,

I was wondering about the expression "stepping stone". For example:

This new job will just be a stepping stone for something better.

Any ideas ?

People,

Here is a good one:

"If looks could kill ..."

And the longer version: "If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him!"

Thanks!

Madre de Acogida

People,

I came across this expression madre de acojida. Is this the same as foster mother?

Is there such a term as madre adoptiva? What would be the difference ?

A Saving Grace

People,

How would one say "saving grace" in Spanish?

For example:

This went bad, and the other went bad, and so on; but the saving grace was that something good happened!

Rusty,

Thanks for the help.

It seems that they don't say it that way in Español, though. I think that I would just have to explain it out, as you said.

Cash In my Chips

Rusty, Poli,

I was thinking more along metaphorical lines.

I think Poli got it, but I didn't know they say "chips" in Spanish.

Isn't there some way of expressing the idea in an organic way?...
