She didn’t know why I was puking these bloody clot things, it scared her to death. Soon ran in and put an I.V and talking to my mom trying to figure out what was going one. By this time I'm freaking out, shaking and saying "oh gosh!" I thought I was dying. I didn't want to die, I didn't get to go to a dance, get married and have children.

But how does it affect the families that go through it? Childhood cancer is a serious problem in families that can cause physical, financial and emotional damage to them. Cancer can affect a family physically with the loss of a child.
There is a quote in the book from Samantha’s mom saying… “There is one in every neighborhood. The family that never mows their lawn. Has toys scattered everywhere. The ones that never plant flowers, or do and let them die. The messy family that lowers real estate values.
“Mom what are you talking about…MOM!” Gabby said. Her face turned pale, while her eyes were widening and I could feel the room closing in on us. I never thought this day would come but now it was here right in front of us. I thought I knew what it was like to be in pain, to feel heartache and sadness. This was before I was holding my best friend sobbing in my arms when she found out her father passed away.
My mom as you can imagine was scared half to death. My sister Isla (iylah) being born. I was ten years old when my little sister Isla was born on september 9th 2013. I remember being in school and doing work and all the usual school stuff when I unknowingly got called down to the office wondering what was happening. When I got to the office of my elementary school, I saw my grandmother waiting for me and I asked what she needed and she said that my mom was having her baby!

I was accustomed to the U.S lifestyle such as going to baseball games or eating hamburgers. In my home, we spoke Spanish, but more often than not I spoke English. Even till today I have never experienced family bonding ; it was always just my father, my mother, my brother, and me. I never had the experience of going to grandma’s house and having Thanksgiving dinner. I never felt the feeling of receiving Christmas presents from all my family members.

When they ask mom says in a really annoyed voice “about five minutes.” When we get there mom wants me to go exploring while she unpacks the car. I am twelve Tanner is ten and Tate is eight.
The evident pain of an appalling time where my mother was at her weakest, not knowing how she would support her four children after being laid off during the Great Recession of 2008, was suffocating. Having no father figure to look up to in my life, other than an illustration of a man leaving his family behind, was excruciating, especially at the boisterous stage of my innocence.

I find that it was grossly unfair that the complexity of adulthood was initiated at the time of my childhood.
Although she never kept a diary, it is true that she ran an upholstery shop, which made flags for the government until the mid-1800s. It is also recorded that she eloped to marry her first husband, that she was widowed three times and she was dedicated to her country. Every kid has learned that Betsy Ross sewed the first flag after George Washington, who went to church with Betsy, personally came to her and asked her to make the flag. George Washington gave Betsy a sketch of what he wanted the flag to look like. He wanted six pointed stars, but Betsy suggested five pointed stars because of the time frame and she supposedly was able to make a five pointed star in one snip.
I never did visit over the past few year her house just seemed uncheerful, but that is the reason I should of went. Mrs. Peters and I went yesterday to her house to gather a few things for her. She asked for an apron, shawl and to see if her fruit was okay. I don’t know about you but to me Minnie isn’t a person I believe is able to kill especially her husband. Although I never knew John personally, I have come to an understanding that he was a respected

The author is incapable of calling her present house with her husband and children a home because of the great impact that the old house had on her during her adolescent years.
