Who Am I?
I am a daughter, sister, mother to be, fiance and friend.
But those are just words that tell only the first pages of my story.
Daughter. I am a daughter. I was born in a small Romanian village where I was left at the hospital after my biological mother had given birth. She wasn’t able to keep me because my family were a poor family of gypsies.
A month from my third birthday, August 29, 2000, a single woman teaching English and living in Romania adopted me , and we lived together in Romania for two more years. That woman became my unconditional loving mother, and I became her daughter.
Sister. I am a sister. I have two younger brothers and a younger sister. Though not blood related, and certainly no similar physical characteristics, those blue eyes kids are my siblings, and they have made me a sister three times. They have taught me countless lessons, loved me, looked up to me, and now inspire me to this day.
