No matter what you get your mom or loved one in your life, make sure to call them up that Sunday and tell them how much you care! Pictured above is my Mom (in red) and Aunt Lolit (in black), the two strongest women I know. They took such great care of me, and I appreciate everything they sacrificed to give me life I have now here in the US! Thank you Mommy and Aunt Lolit! Love you!
