Let me tell you about Neroli Endacott. While others her age can kick back, relax, shoo the kids out the door, and consider retirement - - 59 year old Neroli (who lives on the Gold Coast in Australia), fills her days being mum to some of that states most "at risk" children. Since 1999 she has cared for no less than 100 foster childen. And in 2003 she was named Australia’s Biggest Hero by TV Week Magazine and was also regional finalist for the Royal Brisbane Children’s Hospital "mother of the year" award.

One of the Kids in Neroli’s care said, "Ma gives us kids magical memories, keeps us safe, calms our fears and loves us all unconditionally. I feel pretty special living with her because I’m happy again." A child needs a mother whose warm love will see them protected like that.
