Why she was nominated:
She is an amazing single mom of five children. Her youngest has special needs and she has handled herself with grace and strength and done an amazing job with all of her children, two of which are wonderful grown young men now. She was also able to go to nursing school while raising them on her own in order to provide for her family. Singleness was not in her plan, but she has handled it all beautifully.
