Venus was one of that mom who had to take care of her little one on her own. She didn't have a nanny or family members to depend on. Her husbands work required him to be available at any hour of the day. She didn't want to go for a job because she couldn't afford to leave her kid in the hands of a stranger.
Well, you are not alone then. There are many women like Venus. She had her own dreams but she chose to give it a rest. Because for her present was her child, that's all matters. She wanted to give her child the support and be there when her child needed her.
