Mother warriors

Okay, as far as being a performer and a comedian, I really dislike Jenny McCarthy, but as a mother and an advocate for Children, I have to admire her. This is from her book and I am putting it up on my wall. 

A mother warrior is a mother who hears there is no hope for her child and, instead of retreating and mourning, breaks down walls, weaves her way through obstacles, follows her intuition even when people tell her she is crazy. She is a mother who believes in hope. A mother who believes in miracles and is able to carry on with strength and determination, even when her partner doubts her and offers no support. A mother who never gives up when she keeps hitting dead ends. These are the women who will continue to open the door so future generations of children don't have to suffer. These are the mothers with hearts of gold and shields made of the strongest armor.
