My position was that no, it was in the hands of God; so, then it’s difficult on one hand because you had the illness that needs to be addressed and then you have the differences as to how it would be handled in the household so that was a challenge.

The word that strike me the most, with this story was when John Foppe’s mother made a huge difference in her decision to let her son John do everything for himself like a normal kid would do despite having a handicap , that is, being born without both hands. “It was tough love” She said in her interview, that it was hard for her when she made the decision to not allow John’s other siblings to help him with his chores , knowing that it would be very difficult on the part of his handicapped son. As a mother of a soon to be teenage daughter, I can very much relate with this scenario. Most often than not, as a parent, I employ “tough love” when it comes to disciplining my daughter even if it was difficult emotionally on my part seeing her learning her lessons on her own. This means, not giving in to her splurges, my way of making sure she will not grow up spoiled,
Personal Narrative Seed Folks The thought of being 16 and pregnancy has always weight down on me growing up. I was scare of my family history trying my best not to repeat the life of my mother. In 2001 I was so happy I made it. I accomplish what no one in my family was able to accomplish. I finished high school and even enrolled into college.
I was constantly depressed, and crying myself to sleep knowing that I didn’t say goodbye to her, that she wouldn’t be there for my quinceanera. My grandmother was the person that influenced my parents into coming to America, and finding a future for me, a better education, and opportunities, things I would never achieve in Cuba. My mom would always tell me to study hard, and keep moving forward because my grandmother would always ask about me and how i’m doing in school, as well as to keep pursuing my dreams. At school I was able to focus on my work with the help of my friends. They were there by my side, and many of them understood my pain because they have once lost a grandparent in their life before, they would tell me that the pain would pass by soon, and that life keeps going.
I have had a very difficult time adjusting to college because I knew how to take advice about asking for help and not actually asking for help when I needed it. During my freshman year, this was a great problem and this resulted in me ending the year with a low GPA and losing my scholarship. The wake-up call came when my strong mother broke down after I told her I had lost my scholarship and that she had to pay out of pocket for me to attend an expensive institution. Although I could have dropped out and attended the community college near my home, my mother reminded me that this was my one and only shot at a college education. For the next two semesters, I worked hard and brought my GPA above a 3.0 which helped me regain my scholarship.

I’m now on this journey and ready for whatever it is that God has planned for me.

Leukemia did not win against my grandmother, but I also wish that she would have been able to get the necessary treatment she needed for a person her age. Upon my grandmothers death arose a fair amount of regret. My family was not available every family gathering my grandparents would host, which was a perfect opportunity to build a better relationship with my grandmother. I would always think about the amount of fun I could’ve spent with her if I put forth more effort into our relationship. Regretting the past is something that I know my grandmother will not approve of.
Another thing it made it difficult to do was have a social life. Some of my friends texted me and asked if I wanted to do something this weekend. The only response I had was, “Sorry man, I have my baby project this weekend and I need to stay close to it.” The baby really hindered any plans I had and made a social life nearly impossible. If I were too have a baby at this moment it would drastically change my future plans. I would have to stay close to home and immediately get a job to support my baby.
