I know that I said in my last post that this one would be about teachers and students from school district 103 in Lincolnshire, Illinois, but I have good reason to postpone that focus. Yesterday my mom began chemotherapy.
I know that I have given a lot of people credit for helping me get my book published. But I think I should have started at the beginning. My mom is an amazing woman. She models perseverance!
My dad and mom decided to have a big family. We have one! There are six girls and six boys in our family. And my mom always reminds us that there are three angels in heaven that are our siblings whom we will meet there. (They never had the chance to be born due to miscarriages.) I wouldn't be here or be in such an amazing family if it were not for the hard work of my mom and dad. I only have two children and I can hardly imagine what it was like to be the parents of twelve! I am so blessed to have been raised in my family by these two wonderful parents.
