A parent’s oath
My child, at your birth I make you these promises:
I will always love you more than anything else on earth.
I will always put you first.
I am willing do without to insure that you do not.
I will never harm you; in fact I promise to give my life for you if need be.
I will never say or do anything to harm your relationship with your other natural parent.
I will teach you by what I do, not just by what I say.
