Insights, Facts, and More.

I remember my mother as this beautiful lady who lit up the room whenever she walked in.  She had a deep sense of social justice and spent most of her adult life volunteering her time and efforts directing and caring for children at a local orphanage where we lived.

My childhood was peppered with events that surrounded the needs of the children in the orphanage.  Holidays were spent distributing gifts, serving meals and supervising during outdoor events.  Yet I always felt that my mother was the center of it all.  She had the ability of letting everyone know how special they each were, and that included me.  I look to her image as a guiding compass of my own life.

As a pediatrician, I have had the privilege of sharing with many mothers during the innumerable sick and well visit that have become my daily routine.  I have learned, that as mothers, we all want what is best for our children – health, opportunity and a sense of purpose for their lives.  I have seen mothers, who in spite of all the hardships of life, still put their child’s needs above everything else.  I salute each and every one of your mothers for sharing your children’s health and dreams with all of us at CPMG.

May your children remember you as the kind, generous and confident mother that you are and always look to you for the abundance of strength and love that you provide.

With appreciation,

Chrystal de Freitas
