My daughter Andrea is one of the strongest women I know, she was raised by a young single mother, me. I was on welfare most of her life, even though I worked, went to school and did the best I could for her. She still had a difficult life financially with me.
I did everything I could to keep her in school, especially since when she seldom went and I would go to parent/teacher night, they would tell me how she should be on the honor roll, if she would just go to school and put a little effort into it. She proved this when she went to college (she had a 3.9 average) and received a degree as a Graphic Art Designer, now she is a manager over her department.
I am so proud that she is the strong willed woman that she is and she didn't settle for less than a man who loved only her and she loves him so much. I am so happy that she is married to her soul mate, she held out for real love and didn't accept anything less.
I love that she is a wonderful mommy to Jackson, you can tell this because this little boy is always smiling and laughing. He looks like one of the happiest little boys, his parents love him and it shows.
I pray for my daughter and her family everyday, I wish for continued happiness in their lives and that they will continue to be close to each other and grow even closer together in the future. Life is not always easy but if you have a strong foundation as my daughter has, you have something to rely on which grounds you.
