Up and around once more, Mama Dionne, possessed of a strong maternal instinct, was not satisfied with the brief glimpses she got of her own babies at close range. She always had to wear a sterilized hospital gown, but even then the nurses would not permit her to handle or feed her own babies until they had gained in weight and approached normal development for their age. Madame Dionne is used to hard work, for she was left motherless at the age of seven, and began to do a woman's household work when she was twelve. She was married when she was sixteen, and worked from dawn till dark in the rural district of northern Ontario where her husband struggled with his rough farming.
