Here's a brief look and I urge you to think about how you have fared in the last six months too! 


Family First! As a mother, the most important thing for me is to be involved and committed to my thirteen year old son. Given that I am a working mother, this is not easy to manage. As my teen steps into the turbulent teen years, I want to walk with him every step of the way.
