FAKE Double Drabble: Mother’s Heart

Title: Mother’s Heart
Fandom: FAKE
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Mother Maria Lane.
Rating: G
Setting: Before the manga.
Summary: Being a mother is what Maria Lane was made for.
Written For: The tw100 prompt ‘Children’.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: Double drabble.




It didn’t matter to Mother that she hadn’t given birth to any of them; the children she cared for were hers for as long as they lived under the roof she provided.


She did the best she could for them, no matter what that meant; making sure they were fed and clothed, tucking them into bed at night, patching up skinned knees, finding new families for them… The children’s needs came first with her, always, even though letting them go was always a wrench. A proper family, with parents who could give them all their attention, would always be better for an orphaned child than being one of many, vying for her attention.


Nevertheless, Maria Lane lavished love on the children in her care, doing her best to make each and every one of them know how special they were, and they loved her too, even though she was strict. Children needed boundaries and discipline as well as love.


Becoming a nun, she’d felt she was following her true vocation; she’d never had second thoughts, but above even that, she knew being a Mother was what she was made for. There’d always be room in her heart for another child.

Aw
Thank you!
She is one of the good ones.
Completely dedicated to the children in her care. Dee was lucky to have been raised by her.

Thank you!
This makes me think of us, and other rescue parents, with our babies. Sadly it's hard to find good homes for any orphans, and even then, human babies and puppies stand a far better chance, especially in Redneck Country, of getting good forever homes than kitties.
Older human children aren't so easy to find homes for as babies are either, and there are creatures even harder to re-home than cats.

My neighbours foster kittens until they're able to new found new homes, but apparently nobody wants black cats so they've kept three.

Thank you!
You're right. Older human children are extremely hard to place, but they're also a lot more capable of taking care of themselves than those precious babies who lack opposable thumbs.

And yes, black animals, cats and dogs, are even harder to place in loving homes.

But in this area of murderers and closed minds, cats are almost impossible to place homes for. In fact, the last three we thought we had good homes for -- Let's just say we won't be trying again. Ever.
Abuse of any kind of animal breaks my heart. They all need good loving homes. Most of the pets I've had over the years have been found straying, or else other people's cast-offs.
