I am a mother of 6 and a grandmother of one. I have waited until my children have grown up; so that I could be able to go to school again. I have finished my first semester and will be being my second at the first of January. I had quit school in 12 grade with approximately 5 weeks to go, until graduation. I have since, received my Teacher's Aide in 1996, Completed 2 years in Bible College. Received my completion in Personal Aide Care. I also completed a bible course that was suppose to take 6 months, but I finished it in 2 1/2 months to received my ordination. I also received; Dean's list for my first semester at Kaplan in Human Services. I wanted to prove to my kids that you may take the wrong roads or go down the wrong path in life, but you can fight your way back to the right place. It may take a lot of hard work, and many years, but in the end, it's all worth it.
