“It’s a Journey” as told by Mom
“Against All Odds” as told by Grandmother Ella
I have been told by others that I am strong. Sometimes I too wonder how I do it, because fact is, I never sit still. Nothing seems to come to our family with any amount of ease. After nearly two years of constant chaos and worry, I admit I am tired and emotionally drained.
I am Ella. But, more importantly, I am the grandmother to a beautiful 10-year-old girl named Jaylynn. Jaylynn is a twin and one of five sisters. I feel fortunate to have legal custody of the girls, and my number one priority in life is to make sure that they are happy. I love them and treat them like they are my own.
