A tiny story of triumph….

A tiny story of triumph….What does an act of bravery require? Weapons, muscle strength, courage, focus, intelligence, resolution, technique or….it simply needs a mother’s heart. And a mother is a mother across cultures, countries, and even species. There’s nothing more awe-inspiring when you see something like what’s written below happening before your eyes.
