My amazing hero NULL

I am sitting in English class day dreaming of what I will become when I’m older and then I hear the teacher say, “Students please go get a “My hero is “ book from the bookshelf.That is when I start thinking about my hero and what she's done for me and how she's overcome so many obstacles like they were never happened. My hero is my mom her name is Isela.

She came to the U.S. when she was 16. She lived in North Carolina and then a couple months before she found out she was pregnant with me she moved to Utah. She said she didn't know what to do because she was a single mother with hope of giving her daughter a better future but she didn't know if she could do it all on her own. She worked meanwhile I was in her stomach and she took a couple of weeks out of work and then as soon as she could she went back and she didn't know who she could leave me with so they could take care of me meanwhile she got out of work.

I still remember walking in whatever weather with my mom to Burger King and I would sit in one of tables waiting for her to get out of work she would try her best to keep an eye on me from whatever station she was in and she would come out once in a while and bring me food and from there I would just have to wait so we could walk back home and go to sleep and that was are everyday routine.

One day we were sitting down eating lunch and then one of the workers came up to her and said , “You’re a beautiful strong women,”and he brought me a toy and told me I was very cute.Since then my mom started talking to him and they ended up going out and he would drive her to work but I still had to come along because she didn't have anybody to take care of me but the good thing was that we no longer had to walk in the snow,rain,or hot weather.I also got two toys to play with meanwhile my mom got out of work thanks to him and also thanks to my mom because she raised enough money to buy me the toy I've always have wanted.

They got went out for a long time and they got to know each other well enough to know that they loved each other and wanted to be with each other forever .They got married on July 24th , 2012. I was very happy that my mom finally found her happiness by his side.I’m really glad my mom was strong enough to overcome everything that came her way and tried to stop her from becoming who she is right now .I thank my mom so much for getting me this far and always taking care of me the best she could and for loving me so much and for always fighting through everything that came her way.I also want to thank my step dad for giving me everything I have till this day and for making my mom happy and for making me happy as well and for accepting my mom for who she was. My mom is a warrior for jumping through so many obstacles and for being as strong as a rock.

Then I snap back to reality and realize I was day dreaming.That book makes me see how many heroes there are in this world and how special each one of them is.That day when I get home I tell my mom how much I love her and how much I thank her for making it this far with me in her life.One day we will all find that hero that makes us look up to them and make us really happy and make us become a better person.
