My daughter will be eight months old this Saturday. From the moment my doctor put her on my chest after 48 hours of labor, I was obsessed. I remember not even wanting to give her over to have tests done and to this day I still cringe when I need to leave her for more than a few hours to work. As a mother, the ability to care for my child is the most important thing in my world.

I am a single mother to a teenage boy, and I relocated from the east coast to the west coast due to a great business opportunity. Unfortunately once we relocated we experienced a series of unfortunate events. Our new apartment fell through, there was a rain storm that flooded our storage unit and ruined everything we owned and the business deal failed to happen. Thankfully due to savings for a rainy day (and this was a rainy day), within a relatively short space of time I managed to rebuild my...
