I was born in New York City in a family of 4, my brother, my sister, my mother and me. I had a lot of pain in my life that I did not know how to express. I have faced a lot of challenges. Some I overcame, some I never recovered from, and some I still struggle with today. I am single, mother of five, three adopted, two birth children. One thing I never thought I would ever do was learn how to express myself in a way that touches people's hearts. I am a war veteran, chief, teacher, student, survivor of life and death, lover of life, people, Spanish, Football, Ice Skating, Roller Skating , and animals. Most of all, a lover of God. If it was not for Him, I would have never survived the obstacles that came before me. I love to travel, see new things embrace different cultures, and now, travel to the depths of my heart and place my adventures on paper and share them all with you. I hope you enjoy my writings and take something positive from them.
