Mother and Son


“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”
- Agatha Christie

This quote wholly describes the mothers who come to Niños Incapacitados to get help for their children. Their relentlessness in the face of life-threatening childhood illness is something to behold.

I have the great privilege of working in the Niños Incapacitados clinics. All volunteers who work in our clinics bear witness to the incredible tenacity, bravery, and sheer guts of the mothers of the children we serve. They never flinch. They never stop. They get on buses into Guadalajara at 4 a.m. with their sick children in tow. They hold down several jobs. And finally, they carry their children in their arms to us, asking us to help.

As we come to Mother’s Day, I keep these mothers in my mind and heart. I salute them all for their greatness. And I remember and vow that Niños Incapacitados cannot stop, we cannot flinch. And when they bring their children to us for help, we will extend our arms to embrace them and give them the help they need, to help them carry their children.

Many thanks, 


President, Niños Incapacitados
