The art of being a mother can’t be taught in school, inherited, or learned from books. You feel it, you’re born with it and it appears like a shell that envelops you and gives you strength. Strength you never thought you had.

Being a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle also means to suddenly discover how a part of your essence takes shape and conquers your heart. It’s wonderful. Nevertheless, the simple act of giving birth to a small creature establishes a bond that’s stronger, and at the same time more intimate between the mother and child.

Being a mother is to create a love you didn’t think existed. And though it’s clear that any woman can give birth, you know that your experience is unique. You feel much more alive and every day you’re amazed by how something so small can be so great…

When a woman holds her child in her arms it establishes a certain pact between her and the child. Almost at a whisper, she promises to do everything within her power to make them a happy person, to protect them from all evil and support them every single day of their life in each decision they make.
