Participant number 2 is my dear mother. Madre de siete niños. She is a strong woman to raise all of us especially because of our family circumstances. I know my mom gets a lot of crap from different people but she is a truly amazing woman. I look up to her and acknowledge all that she has done/does for my family. This Thanksgiving, I realized I am more and more thankful for her. She's not perfect, but then again who is?
