It takes a certain amount of courage to be a good mother to your children. It takes a true hero to step up and become a mother for someone else’s children.
Yet, that is exactly what this sweet dog did when she discovered a litter of orphaned possums.
If you’re a parent, you know this look. It takes a lot of patience to deal with children, but she overcomes adversity to build a lasting bond with these needy babies.
She understands that despite times when she feels exhausted or frustrated, the benefits of unconditional love are unfathomable.
Love has the power to transcend trials and tribulation, and humanity could certainly take a page from her book as she nurtures and provides safety and security out of the kindness of her heart.
As a dutiful mother, she makes sure that her new children are clean and fed, kept warm within the protective circle of her own body against the wind and other elements.
When it’s time to go, she is unwilling to leave the estranged orphans behind, insisting that they cling to her so that she can transport them to a new home where she can better provide for them and keep them safe.
She showcases her babies with pride because even though they may look different from her on the outside, on the inside they share the same feelings and emotions, like the love which is growing with each passing moment together.
These babies are lucky to have found such a wonderful mama, and her life will forever be enriched by them, as well.
A powerful gesture like hers can make all the difference in these lives, saving them from the loss of their natural mother and giving them a chance to flourish and thrive in a loving environment by someone who is willing to make sacrifices to ensure their lives are the best that they can be, even under difficult circumstances.
Should we all be so lucky to have compassionate souls like her in our lives!
