    If my mom and dad would have never split up, my mom never would have met my step dad, who showed me that a man could love and care for a child as his own even if they aren’t blood. He spent time with me, bought me nice clothes and toys, and basically spoiled me my entire childhood. He always believed in me, and pushed me beyond my limits, because he saw potential in me. I do not think any less of him because he isn 't my real dad. Another reason I 'm thankful for the way I was raised, is that the home I spent most of my time at led me to believe that everything in life is easy and everyone can have nice possessions and go on fancy vacations, but I learned that was not the case.…

    What I did not realize is that love is so much more than the blissful moments, it is heartbreak, it is sacrifice, and most of all it is putting others before yourself.

He assumed the roles of both parents and worked harder than anyone I knew to keep my family happy. Raising four kids, being a single parent and working forty plus hours a week, shows dedication. My mother had nineteen years of my life to show me she loved me, which never happened.…

    From the time I could remember myself, I remember that my mom always had a great respect and love for my dad, and the last word in our family always was after my dad. My dad greatly loved (and still does) my mom, an even though he technically did have more authority in our house than my mom, he never used it against any of us. He is a really wise man, and he always includes everyone’s opinions in his decisions. When there was a time when we did not have enough money to pay for everything, and my mom had to return back to being a tailor, which she did before my parents got married. One time that I remember which really made me grow up is when I was 7.…
