Nadia from Virginia

Shenea is my life line, she is the reason why I am so successful in life now so now it is my turn to pay her back. 5 years ago mom was in a car accident that paralyzed the left side her body so movement is limited for her. Myself along with my brother take care of all her needs but I am her primary care giver. It's tough trying to live & have my own life and still make sure all my mom's needs are met, but at the end of the day seeing her taken care of tops all of that. There is nothing I would change about this situation, feeding, bathing, church, doctor visits is not issue, as long as she is taken care of is what matters most.
