When moms thrive, children thrive.
“Counselling, doctors, social programs, all that stuff is available - but what my fellow clinical researchers and I keep coming back to is this: what people really need is a mom. That’s what was missing, the attachment, the development of self-esteem, the guidance and structure of how to take care of oneself, that’s all rooted in family.” - Chris Siu, MA, RCC
