The Day My Life Changed Forever
I remember the day he born. I was nervous for the simple fact that my life would never be the same. Soon no longer just known as Marisa, I would take on a new title. A title that I shared with so many women, and after eight long hours of labor, I am known to the world as mommy.
Growing up I came from a family of two sisters and a brother. My parents worked hard to be sure that there was always a roof over our head, food on the table, and clothes on our back. My dad worked for different companies until, he was able to obtain his own construction company in Mexico. Today he is no longer with us, because; he passed away a few years ago. However, he will always be in our mind.
My mother also took on various jobs to make ends meet. She began work as an unprofessional cutting hair in a salon and slowly climbed her way to the top. After she had a hard time with schooling and training, she is now a professional. She has her own beauty salon called Estrella located in Chicago IL.
I never dreamed of having a child at such a young age. In fact, in high school I was the typical student who maintained good grades, stayed on the honor roll, and participated in extracurricular activities. Outside of school, my friends and I were always doing something after the soccer games or just hanging on Saturday nights, being typical teenagers. Soon all of that would end. I knew the next few months to come; I would be responsible for a new life, as if trying to be responsible for mine...
