The whānau I never had is her.
Her sacrifice and limitless love, does not go unnoticed.
She is the kind of mother for our children that I wanted myself as a kid but never had.
She is gentle and soft, my son once said;
"Dad! Thanks for picking me the best mother with the biggest heart in the universe and he's right..
She makes our whānau what it is.
