Carrying my daughter in my arms walking through a difficult trails and hills. In this piece, I try to express my conviction that a mother is inevitably bound to fulfilling her role as a mother and taking care of a defenseless being that needs her. This piece speaks about the difficulties I have to go through as a single parent. It also portrays women as strong and able to overcome any obstacle and discover unprecedented strength within themselves because of their children.
