I have yet to have children.
I do not know how it feels to give birth to another human being and to experience that life long love---that maternal bond.
My friends with kids often remark they'd do anything to protect their children.
Playing devil's advocate, I jump on the bandwagon and ask them if they knew that their child (or children)commited a crime, would they ever turn them in to the police.
Every last one of them has said no.
They couldn't bring themselves to turn their children in---no matter how horrific the act.
I counter with the statement, "So why do you bother teaching them right from wrong and taking them to church?
That one is usually met with icy silence.
I guess it's difficult to turn over one's offspring to the authorities.
That's why this woman not only gets my praise but my prayers and respect as well.
Instead of turning a blind eye, she made a huge personal sacrifice.
She knows that all of the best examples begin at home.
