This is my mom when she was about 15 or 16. She passed away 14 years ago.
On Dec 25, 1994, I became a MOM to a sweet baby girl. It has been the hardest, most fun and rewarding job that I have had. In 19 years, she has grown into a smart, talented, enthusiastic, loud, funny, opinionated, (did I say loud??) woman who is self reliant but still needs guidance at times, even if she won't admit it.
This is Marissa at one day old.
Marissa myself on her First Birthday!!!
