Today her eyes met mine in the Doctors office and we both knew that we knew. The struggle. The pain. The fear. The determination, dedication . This American woman fights for her sick child. Every moment of every day her greatest accomplishment may not be written about in a book..but instead is written on the heart of her child and one more day of hope and survival. She is an American hero.
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us, when adversity takes the place of prosperity, when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us, when trouble thickens around us, still she will cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. - Washington Irving
