A Mother's Love
By Jody Williams

1     Everyone has a mother. Mother Teresa was a mother to everyone. Mother Teresa made it her job to help the world's needy people. She helped sick people. She helped poor people. She helped people who were dying. Mother Teresa never wanted anything for her work. Helping people was enough.
2     Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in Europe. When she was born, her name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. Her family always had what they needed. She chose to become a nun when she was 18. She changed her name to Teresa. Sister Teresa became a teacher at a girl's school in India. She saw that people lived on the streets. She saw how some of them were sick. She saw how poor they were. Teresa knew she had to help.
