Happy Mother's Day, everyone.
At the risk of sounding like a Pedro Almodovar film (did you see Volver? Why not?) I'd like to take a moment to appreciate those who step in as Mom in circumstances which lead them to nurture creatures of a most different bent than themselves.
So different, in fact, as to be an entirely different species.
The tiger cannot change its stripes. . . but cubs need mommies too.
