Join This Friday's challenge.-----Click here to decorate your entry---

It was 1968 and an unwed 17 year old girl found herself expecting a child. Her whole world was turned upside down. This just wasn’t accepted back then. She had to leave her school to hide what “she had done.” This experience put her in a scary place and made her so unsure of what was coming next. She spent her whole life longing to be loved and wanted.

She married the father of the baby who was 10 years her senior. The day the baby came, he went fishing because he thought if he wasn't there he didn't have to pay the bill. Who leaves an 18 year old girl to go thru this alone? When this young mom set her eyes on her sweet baby girl she thought, “This baby is so beautiful I am scared someone will steal her.” She was determined to raise her baby teaching her to love animals, art, music and to make family traditions.

Thankfully, I wasn’t born on the back seat of a Greyhound bus. But this song helps me to imagine what it must have been like for my mom. While she was finding her way in the world, I was there with her. I can’t imagine myself at 21 having a three year old or being 33 with a teenager!

Her determination has given me strength and a great sense of empathy for others!
