during the course of your own fife, you have saved one life, it is as if you have saved all mankind." Few occupations give us the opportunity of participating in the saving of a life. The everyday work of the child welfare worker is concerned with just that--reclaiming a child for life. It is to be expected that such a task would be very difficult. It is also to be expected that there are few, if any, tasks that offer the same degree of satisfaction and the same sense of accomplishment.

The task is large and difficult. The aims and hopes have to be commensurately modest. The medieval medical dictum is applicable and appropriate here: "To cure some time, to relieve often, to comfort always."

The red wine of life, the passion in the encounter with children denied a childhood, needs to be included here as an addition to the factual data regarding the child welfare worker. It is included in the child welfare worker's job.
