I do not have children of my own but I cherish my neices (ages 6 and 7) and my nephew (age 5). My brother and his ex wife had a messy divorce and she is always playing head games with the kids. I think the best role models for these children are their father, their grandmother, and me. Their father has changed jobs several times to allow him more time with them (their mother only sees them every other weekend.) My mother is retired and had devoted herself to her grandchildren. I am the aunt that I'd liked to have had when I was a kid. We show them unconditional love, try to instill the difference between right and wrong, and support them in all their endeavors. I know we have our faults but I hope they are overshadowed by our hope that these children grow up knowing they are loved and hold an important place in the world and in our hearts.
