If I have a baby, I will be very much like my mother. Granted, teaching has made me question whether the institution of parenthood is a thing I dare to undertake. However, my mother is incredible and I am on my way to being just like her. She put herself through college and raised two children on her own and made a career for herself and is now the manager of her division of oncology research. She's a power house and she's a widow, but she isn't afraid to tackle life on her own. She's strong and independent and mine.
