Swans are loyal partners and loving and caring parents.
Four years ago, I was very depressed when I realized that I would have to raise my children alone. I knew it would have a hard time, and I often dreamed for a miracle.
I had always wished for a man for my children and me who would understand the sacrifices that caring for children requires, and who would see this as a wonderful journey that we could share together.
I saw this pair of swans every time I walked along the river near our new home. I watched them raising their children, and for me they represented the promise for a better future for the three of us.
