I am the proud mother of four beautiful children-ages 16, 13, 9, and 4. I have strived very hard to achieve my dreams! I began motherhood as a teenage parent, but remained goal-driven and flexible (boy did I need to be flexible). My children are just as charismatic and goofy (at times) as I am. I always dreamed of a large family. Never as a single mom--this is where that flexibility came in to play!!! I am recently divorced after a 19 year relationship and still press on. My children are an inspiration to me-with their unique personalities, qualities, and weakness. Despite my own shortcomings, I am able to give them the hands on parenting that many never have an opportunity to witness! Most people who get to know me and my family are interested to know how I manage to pull this thing off day in and day out. Well, thats an easy one--God's on my side. I love being a young mother of 4-never regretting my past, only learning from it! Happy mother's day to all of the lovely mothers!
