Born in Chicago, but influenced by the world, I have recently broken free of the stronghold that the world once had on me. I am now reaping the immeasurable blessings of love, life, strength and loyalty. As I share each day wit my children and husband, and I reminded of the pure beauty that exists in the world. Once a believer of few things, I now believe that anything is possible, especially my own dreams. Journey into my new world and take a look around. While life is not perfect, it is far from what I've lived before. Becoming accustomed to change is a daily process that I am learning to master.
