Joan, a resident at Providence Mount St. Vincent, shares with former chaplain Jane how the pain of being unable to have children became a driving force in her life. As a way to fulfill her maternal instincts, she decided to get a degree in early childhood education, which led to a job running a school. As she sees it, this allowed her to have many children to look after and ensure they got the love and respect they deserved. Edit credit: Mike Addis
