Breanna's Dream

Breanna is very special to me. She is my hero instead of me being hers. She is my daughter and I would not change that for the world. BB, as we call her, has a dream of being a teacher. She is out going and she loves everyone she comes in contact with. She will sit in the living room and act like she is teaching a class every day after school and on weekends. She is 15 and just started her 9th grade year with a smile. I have never really understood how she goes through every day at school until I went with her one day to make sure she was ok in the high school. Little did I know she could function better in high school than I did. I look at my little girl and I'm afraid for her future. Well, I was afraid of her future. She has taught me so much about life and I love the fact that she has so much courage and everyday she teaches me more and more. She is my HERO.
