My mother is my hero because she chose me. I am the only adopted child out of four children; all three of my siblings are my mother's biological children. So why me? You don't just adopt a child in 1965 with no story. Yet here I am—a part of the most wonderful family you could ever dream for.
My mother made me who I am, she taught me right from wrong, she stood proud no matter what silly thing I did. She is my biggest fan and loves me with such pride and joy that I am her hero too. God put this fiery red head right in the middle of a Sicilian family for that reason and I can't think of a more inspirational hero than my mom. She made me a second chance baby somehow. She needed me and I will never stop needing her. A hero is an earned honor and she earns it every moment of my life.
