Helping People Bloom

My niece lived with me for a year; when she arrived, she was lost and lacked direction. I encouraged her to try new things, helped her learn the value of a dollar, and engaged in real conversations with her. When she left my home, she was an unstoppable force going after her dreams, and I took great joy in seeing her blossom.

To this day, we are close, and while I do not have children of my own, it was a blessing to be a motherly figure for her and see her grow up.

I would’ve been a great mom.
