“Being born a human being does not ensure a child will become humane. Humans become humane. The capacity to care, to share, to listen, value and be empathic – to be compassionate – develops from being cared for, shared with, listened to, valued and nurtured. Humane caregiving expresses our capacity to be humane. Inhumane caregiving can decrease or even destroy this capacity." ~ Dr. Bruce Perry”
