how you found help in a time of need from family, friends, or professionals;
how you learned to acknowledge or accept your reality and/or grief;
how you learned something from your challenge;
how a challenge made you a better mother;
how you were able to use your experience to help others;
or how time gave you perspective on your challenge/experience.
