All It Takes Is Two
As different as my parents are, this combination somehow worked to create three incredible children who contribute to their country, society and community.
My brother is a college graduate and registered nurse currently serving in the U.S. Army. Hes married with three children of his own. My sister is a college graduate with a degree in early childhood education. Shes the mother of two boys and is active in her church community. I graduated with a masters degree in public health and just recently started a successful business. I also teach religious education to 8th graders in my church.
The love, acceptance and guidance I received from my parents helped shape me into the woman I am today. Some say it takes a village to raise a child, but in my familys case, it took just Rudy and Lucille. And it may be because of their differencestheir acceptance and straight talkthat they are truly inspirational to me.
