My Strength I was heartbroken when I decided to leave my country seven years ago to come live with my family in the united States. My mom didn’t know the main reason why I finally accepted her request. I was feeling so empty and lonely at that time that I would have say yes to anything just to run away from it. Few weeks after I came here I found out that I was pregnant, and I remember at that time being scared to death:
How am I going to care for someone when I am such a mess myself? Well, as time went by, I found the strength and the courage to face my demons and fears, and most of all the focus less on myself and began to think about that little life growing inside of me. I signed up to a vocational training school and started the pharmacy technician program.

I didn’t know what I was so I called my mom and she told me to rush to the hospital where she will meet me there. After that everything went so fast that before I knew It I was holding the most precious thing on earth In my hand. I looked at her and that’s when I named her: Erin which means Peace In Gaelic. That’s exactly what she meant for me. Holding her for the first time brought a felling of achievement; nothing else TLD matter at that moment except her.
It’s crazy when you think about it but before you have children you don’t really understand the love your parents have for you. But as she grows older, I know what my mom went through and love her even more for everything she did for me. Two weeks after my daughter was born, I went back to school and finish the program. I got hired in the company where I did my internship to fulfill the 180 hours for the license requirements, and as of today I am still working there but part-time only because I decided to move forward and get college degree.
