Born and raised most of my childhood in Philadelphia, Pa. Lived in Puerto Rico for three years, where I graduated from HS and attended my first year of College. Moved back to Philadelphia where I met my husband. Lived in New Jersey, Florida, and now Iowa.
About My Family:
My husband and I have been married for 22 years. We had four daughters, our oldest died three days before her 1st birthday, then Melanie who will be 18 in May of this year, then Rachel 16 and our youngest is Gisselle.

Melanie was born just 6 month after the death of Sara, she was 7 weeks premature. Doctors ruled out several diagnosis' while in utero. Today she has not been linked with a syndrome, she is intelectually disabled, non verbal and has some physical challenges. Our daughter Rachel was diagnosis at 30months old with autism.
