We are supporting Micaela in her journey to learn to live without her mother at such a young age. Micaela was blessed with the best of mothers: Clemy worked day and night to make sure her daughter had what she needed in every sense: materially, emotionally and practically. Her mother gave her everything she had and Micaela was her entire world. Despite Clemy's circumstances, she told her daughter to dream big. Micaela is an extremely intelligent, delightful, kind, smart and well-raised young woman who is wise beyond her years and on her way to do great things. She is on the high honor roll in high school, entering her senior year and currently applying to college. She dreams of being a doctor. She misses her mother more than words can capture and never expected to have to do the rest of her maturing without her mother's constant love and nurturing, yet she is accepting the situation as gracefully as one could imagine. She is the kind of young woman who can turn tragedy into triumph and turn darkness into light, all in her endeavor to help others. Let's support Micaela in her goal to go to college despite all the odds and let her know that this world is good and she has many parents in all of us.
