Without a doubt the most important thing in my life is my daughter, Alanna. Supporting her means more to me than anything else in the world, and giving birth to her was my proudest moment in life. Being a single parent; having a busy schedule, and taking care of the family dog makes the job hard at times. The question that I ask myself at times is am I doing ok, and am I able to raise my child on my own.... The answer is yes I am, and yes I will.

The pride of being able to raise my daughter is beyond that of any feeling I've ever felt. Holding my baby for the first time; hearing her cry, and watching her roll over were experiences that I will never forget. Adversity is a part of life that everyone has to face at times, some more than others. It's a shame that her father doesn't want to be a part of her growing up, but all it does is motivate me to be a better mother. As Alanna grows up I will teach her all of the things I've learned the hard way, and provide for her the best way I can. Parenting is a journey with rocky and smooth roads, and sometimes the best thing to do is roll with it.

With my baby being five months I'm not going to claim being an expert parent. There are times when I don't have a clue what I'm doing and that scares me. I find myself calling home to talk to my mama more often than I ever thought, and her support means the world to me. She tells me all about the long nights of crying and tantrums and makes me feel less alone in my struggles. Waking up in the middle of the night to feed my baby girl is now a regular occurrence, but I don't mind as long as she grows up healthy and strong. My goal is to make sure I stay strong and raise a smart, successful and independent woman.
