17. It's not just being able to love and care for a baby in your care

it's also being able to let go gracefully when a family member steps up and wants to care for him or her. I've had trouble letting go of kittens. I don't know that I'd be very good at letting go of a child.

Thank you for doing this incredibly important work.
