I never thought I would become a author. As a young child my dream was to become lawyer and fight for children in the foster system; family law. Once I became a mother those dreams started to fade but my love for help other had not. I became a foster mom to my niece and my nephew. I later started mentoring children in the family. Helping them to stay focused and show them they can do anything they set their minds to.
One night I picked up a pen, I sat down, and started writing down 14 years worth of hard work/research on paper . When I finally stop writing I had 4 chapter written and so much more to go. I did not pick the pen up again for another 7-8 months. Some would say I had writers block but felt I was not a writer so this was not that. It took me 2 years to finish the book but it was so worth it. I felt I have accomplished a lot. I may not be that lawyer I dream of but I have become something else…an author.
