she is my hero, and for so many reasons…


…Yes, my mom is my rock, my hero, my role model, and the list doesn't stop there. My sister couldn't have said it better so I am going to share what she said…

"My mom found herself pregnant at 14 with nobody to help or love on her. She later faced abuse & rape. I've had the honor of watching her (with my dad by her side the whole way) follow her dreams and open a maternity home for young, struggling, and lots of times abused women who find themselves with unplanned pregnancies & nowhere to go. I've watched the joys & the struggles throughout this process. They are trying to raise $25,000 to help support their dream & goal. It may sound like a lot but if everyone just gives a little, it won't be. I know there is always some organization to give to but I'm asking from the bottom of my heart to help my parents and the dream God gave them. They've sacrificed so much for this, you just have no idea. I'm SO proud and inspired. Unplanned pregnancies don't make a girl a horrible person, the consequence (which ends up being a blessing) is just greater than most other screw-ups that people make on a daily basis."
