Teresa proves that with passion, you can accomplish whatever you’ve set your mind to overcome. I enjoyed her story and admire women who can fix things, whether at home, or with their car. As she said herself, “Not bad for a woman who won’t push the buttons on a tv clicker, use a cell phone, or connect to the Internet.”
Kathleen shares her emotional story of the love a mother has for her son, no matter what. There are many parents who can relate to problem teenagers, even though the severity of the situation varies considerably. Kathleen made us realize that “tough love” is often the only approach, and how difficult it is for parents to carry through with this process.
Siv wrote a beautiful story with a happy ending. What amazes me is how Facebook has connected so many people who may never have found each other. Her personal story offers hope to those searching for relatives or their adoptive parents.
Marcia’s story shows how overcoming a difficult childhood brought out the “hero” in her rather than the liar and a procrastinator of her early childhood years. I admire how she chose to overcome her own fears and doubts about teaching, and turned them into a positive way to make children strive to work hard and attain success in life.
The winner will be announced on June 14th. Winner gets to pick their prize from our 14 sponsors.
