No one can truly understand the sacrifices mothers go through for the sake of their children. A mother's love is boundless, endless and strong, it is the oil that propel the wheel of life for her children and the only thing that never grows weak or dead. And so, it was for the sake of that undying strong love for her child, this novel tells the story of all heroic mother's out there whose story of struggle, strive and victory needs to be celebrated. I have always wondered in my mind eyes why mother's sacrifice so much for their children. I once ask my late mom why she would rather we eat and she go without food sometimes and the only answer she could give was-'' when you grow up and become a mother someday, then you will understand there is nothing a mother will not do for her child''.
Indeed, today I am not only a mother, but a single mother of two great sons. My own story of struggles, strive, pain and triumph has given me so many answers to that simple question I once ask my mother.
Looking back today, my two children are the greatest achievement of my life, they are the reflection of my true story and the story of many other unsung heroic mother's there waiting to excel from the brink of disaster. I am hoping that my story will give courage to all reading this novel to understand that you are not alone in that decision you make to keep your baby and fend for them come rain come shine. I know for sure that no sacrifice of a true mother will go unrewarded one way or the other.
