A single mom trusts God to carry her through

I'm 27—and I've been a mother over half my life now. While most of my friends were is school, I was in the hospital delivering my daughter, Whitney. And even though I was a teenage mom, in many ways I managed to stay either on the same path as my friends or even ahead of them. After Whitney was born, I went back to school and did very well. Most of my friends did not work full time, but despite being a student, I found a full-time job that could support my household.

I am finally graduating from college—several years later than my friends. But because of my sometimes winding road to the present, along with my degree, I have a lot of work experience and a very clear idea of who I am.
