Gateway of Courage



This work is in honor of mothers who face the most impossible of situations. Immigrant mothers escaping conflict to save their child. Single moms, who work twice as hard so their kids feel complete. Mothers battling illness so they can live to see their children grow, et cetera. These women while facing different adversities are interconnected by the threads of humanity and determination in the gateway of courage.


"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
