  • My best friend was called the whore in highschool and she did a lot of drugs. She had a kid, lives with her fiance, goes to nursing school, and is bettering herself everyday. I've always thought she was a beautiful person, even though her decisions weren't all that great for her, but she had a baby and completely turned around. Shes doing so great. Shes actually talked me into going into nursing haha. Which I will when my baby is old enough to not need me all the time.

  • Yes. Her name is Karen. She gave birth to her son december of 09, 12 weeks premature. He went through 4 open heart surgeries, blood infections, set backs... And about 2 weeks frobringing him home, after 9 months of fighting for him in the NICU, his heart stopped beating. She was devastated. But she used the experience to motivate her life, and is now in the top of her nursing class, on her way to becoming a NICU nurse. I am so proud of her and admire all the things she is accomplishing with "Mason (her son) as her guide". She is truly inspirational.

  • my friend angie. she has wanted to lose wieght and she goes to the gym even though she works full days she sets goals and meets them and even though he loser BF had carpal surgery, she still is with him, he didnt have a job at all and he lives with his parents and still does to him complaining how sucky his now job at the dollar store is. She used to pay for him and his ways and even his weed because she cares about him that much.

  • I do. She is not a close friend, but I have watched her lose a ton of weight, start running in marathons, and start law school. She is amazing!
