I am a third grade school teacher who has taught for fifteen years. 6 years ago my school closed and I was left with few options. I ended up moving to another state about 7oo miles away from my family next to a friend that was in need. Since that time I have had a family member who has taken ill and an aunt who just turned 100. it has been a wake up call for me to see how it is so important to be near family. After leaving to travel back home at Christmas, all I could think about is if I would not be able to see my Aunt again and how much I needed and loved my family. I would love to make that move back home but as a single women without another income it will be difficult. I ask that you see in your heart how important it is to be near family just like I do and play that feeling forward. I would really appreciate it.
