  • My Mom. She was on drugs, drinking, smoking, doing just about everything she should have been doing until she got pregnant with me. She quit cold turkey. All of it. She did everything she could to make sure I was healthy.
    My Bio-dad was an abusive SOB, and she left his ass high and dry. (Literally high and dry because she waited until he was too high to do anything, and dumped all his booze out.)
    She's my hero, flat out. She straightened herself out, stayed clean, got a job, and was one hell of a Mom. She's my best friend.

  • Honestly? Nobody. I've been let down so many times by those I thought were role models that I look only to myself.

  • I actually look up to my next door neighbors. I would love to be as successful as one of them with the progress that she has made in her life and I would love to be like the mom of 6 boys next door to me. I don't know how she does it but she is the bestfriend to all 6 boys. They can talk to her about anything.

  • I don't have anyone to look up to as a role model, but I keep my mother in mind during my parenting and in my memories with my children. She would have made a fantastic grandmother to them.
    She died suddenly when I was 11 so I never got to know her as a person like most adult children get to know their parents when they grow up. I'm hoping I'm raising my girls correctly because I don't have any examples to compare my parenting styles to.
