She was born into a single parent family. Her mother had been struggling to raise her son alone for eight years by the time this little girl was born.
Before her first birthday, this baby’s mother came to a decision that she would not be able to raise this child on her own, and she was surrendered for adoption.
This little girl was blessed to be adopted into a loving family with two parents, and two older brothers who doted on her. She grew up feeling loved and treasured.
She married young and had three beautiful children of her own. She grew into a strong and gifted young woman with many talents. As a young mother she started her own children’s clothing business, working from her basement sewing beautiful outfits on her serger.
Later, when her children were in school, she also returned to school to earn a degree. Following that she moved to Korea and taught English for almost two years.
Today this little girl is being treated for breast cancer and is on her third round of chemotherapy. She astounds me with her strength every time I talk to her.
This little girl is my sister.
