As a child school was the place where I felt safe and nurtured.
When I went into the 11th grade a teacher who I now I call mom rescued me and saved my life.
Sixteen years ago My Teacher, My Mom showed me that I had a life worth living. She took me into her home and put me into her heart. I used to struggle with what defines a person as a mother and I came up with this, a mother gives you life, nurture, unconditional love and guidance. My Mom, My Teacher has showed, taught and chosen to give me all of the things I constitute as mother. I will show and teach my children as she did me. Although I was not birthed from her, I'm alive because of her!
Happy Mother's Day to My Mom, My Teacher!
