  • a person wanting to help another grow, a good protective sense, a fast learner, someone willing to notice change and modify themselves, the ability to put your needs on hold for another's growth, the ability to live with failure.

    the ability to "get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children"

  • Good intentions and selflessness. We all make mistakes, but if you are intending to do good and putting your childrens needs before your own everything should work out.
