My mom is the young lady standing proudly behind her loving aunts and uncle in her native country of Guatemala

Little did you know that you would embark on a journey into an unknown land with unknown people in order to provide a future for your family. You left everything that you knew. You learned a new language. You took a menial job to lay a foundation for the kids that were to come. You earned enough money to bring my dad into this country. You bought a small home to call your own. You strove for your American Dream.  You lived.

For this and more I could not be prouder in saying that I have an extraordinary mom. I strive every day to be as courageous and independent as you. Your efforts will not be in vain. Your same ambitious spirit lives within me.

I love you mom for all of your sacrifices and never-ending support. You are my biggest fan and I yours.
