Mother's Dream to Fly

My name is Brittney Abell, trying to reach my goal to become a professional pilot. This is a work in progress to say the least. I've been flying off and on since I was 16, but now I am 24, married, and have a one year old son. My dreams of flying are beginning to slip away. Instead of my college fund, I am trying to save for my son's college fund. That dream that was so close to becoming a reality is now becoming a distant memory of what could have been. I am a full time working mother and I am also in school for Aviation Management. My goal is to fly on the weekends and build up enough hours to get my Certified Flight Instructor's Certificate in order to get paid to fly. It is 120 an hour for flight and I need 250 flight hours. If I can achieve this, I'm sure my dream will become a reality for my family and me. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
