My husband died when my daughter was 16. I collapsed emotionally and all I could do was work 12 hours a day 7 days a week. She picked up our lives and made sure her 13 year old brother went to school and graduated. Three years later I had a stroke on my 50th birthday. My Alex worked and supported the 3 of us through 10 years of pain and loss in my decent into alcoholism. I am now 3 years sober and getting our lives back on track. But we could not, I could not, have come to this point in my life of healing and hope without her care, love, and and hard work. My daughter is my hero.
