I suppose you were as open as a high school girl can be when confiding in her parents. You always knew we would do what we could for you and you were always willing to help out.” Honestly I couldn’t word our relationship better myself. Many times in class we talk about how children rebel or want to make themselves different from their parents, they have a phase where they slam doors and close off from their parents, however that never happened with me and my parents. I then proceeded to ask her what was her biggest fear for me going into high school was, she replied “You growing apart from us, but you didn’t!” Again we have talked many times in class how at some point high school adolescents go through a period when they drift away from their parents but not me. The next question I asked was do you think our relationship changed through out high school and if so how?
I was waiting to be the next deadbeat drug addicted mother like all the other kids moms that I knew. But all those thought switched when my change finally came. Ever since I was a little girl my sisters and I always had a strong love my mom. My mom to us was the life of the party when she came around and wasn 't high off of drugs. My mom was funny, smart, stylish, and all the things a daughter would
My first year as a student, I called my mother every day, telling her everything that happened, whether it was good or bad, she knew. My freshmen year was the roughest academic year I have experienced, I cried and went home every week and each time I went home my mother was there praying and fasting on my behave. She was there to remind me not to run away from my academics, but to face them with faith and passion. This was not an easy task, but with her motivating me, praying for me and giving me encouraging words throughout the semester, nothing seemed
She would like to be a Registered Nurse serving her purpose at any hospital. Becoming a registered nurse has always been one of my mom 's goals in life, and now watching her go to school and complete that goal as a single mother shows me that anything is possible. In regard to her going back to school being thirty seven inspires me to have a passion. Although, I sometimes make the wrong decisions in life my mother has always stood by me and guided me to the right
We never knew that there wasn't a money fairy that just provided whatever was needed pay for things. When I finally looked back on those days I remember my Mom working two jobs virtually every day of the week to get my sister and I into the school we wanted to attend, keep a roof over our heads, food on the table, and dressed in the current fashions of the day. Mom felt compelled to try and make sure that she pleased everyone all the time. This was always obvious in how hard she worked to please her family, friends, co-workers, and even people didn't know or barely knew. Mom was a perfectionist and if you ever went into her house it was immaculately clean and perfectly decorated.
I want them to graduate high school like me and my sister did. My mother always wanted me and my twin to get a good education. My aunt would call almost every day to see how I was doing in school and what my grades was looking like. My grandmother was determined that we finished school and go to college. My mom is a very strong independent woman who pushes education to the max in my household.
* * * It seems we have a solution to the decline in family togetherness. Mom, being a principal has always had a huge heart for her students. Apparently one in particular has caught her eye and shoved her into action. A little girl named Lindsey attending Mom's school is going to be coming to live with us. I don't know the whole story on her but apparently her mom died when she was real young and after bouncing in and out of several foster homes, as well as the courts with her dad she is in need of another family.
Gaby is a straight A student with college ambitions. She is required to do a senior project and she decides that she wants to do something that is meaningful to her and that will make an impact on others.

One had to do home school after the baby was born, and one now has a tutor who comes to her house weekly since she cannot go to school until the baby is born, but all have received encouragement and love and are finishing school. A girl who does not have the support of friends and family will quit school and will not go back and finish their degree, and will end up homeless or living on welfare.

Sandra Maria Esteves talked about what life would be like for these children if they had a mother, but now the door is opened to what abandoned children go through on a daily basis.

She talked about the great things they would bond over and all the things the mother would do for their children.
Looking back and knowing what I know now I feel that if I look back I see a lot of reflected appraisal in me. Because I my sister saw me as her main role model and mom I took the role on with determination. I would never wish this upon anyone in my life. The way we raised ourselves was the way we learned to adapt to our new situation with a mother who didn’t care about her children. We made it all work from school events to “booboos” I think we had it better than most because I made it so.
