The Earthquake

Josianne Dicaire, mother

Life took our two little boys away from us. It also robbed me of my innocence and naivety when it came to motherhood. But what I lost there, I gained in awareness of how precious a child’s health is and what a miracle life can be. Our story is both a sad and a happy one. The years we have spent between these walls has made us realize what the most precious things are: life, love and empathy.
