Hello, everyone my name is Wanda White I’m a single mother of a 9 year old son. For a long time in my life I believed I couldn’t have kids. I became pregnant at the age of 41 what a shocker before everyone use to tell me I would be psyching myself out thinking I had symptoms of being pregnant. To be honest I probably was because I was never pregnant. I would pray and ask God just to give me a child of my own I wanted a mini me.

You know they say be careful of what you pray for and you have to be specific. Anyway I have a son that is the joy of my life. I’ve always been a hard worker but lost my job in 2016 I had been a Bus Operator for over 24 years. I had been injured on the job I injured my back had three major back surgeries and I continued to work but I was suffering but I had to work to support my son but of course I was going to the doctor a lot and taking days off. However, I was dealing with issues with my son. I started receiving calls to job about my son I wasn’t aware he was having issues. Later I found out he was diagnosed with ADHD, OCD, and ODD. I was in denial I didn’t have a problem with him at home but in school he was out of control. So right now I’m a stay at home mom trying to do all type of things to support my son. Honestly I thought parents that gave there kids medicine was just lazy and didn’t want to deal with their kids. Until one day I got a call on my job telling me I had to go to his school and pick him up or I would have to pick him up and the police station. When I picked him up I couldn’t believe what my son had done.

He had turned all the chairs over in the classroom book bags was thrown all over the class room crayons and markers all over the floor and the cops were blocking the door because he was trying to run off campus. So don’t be like me and say not my child at that point I realize he was out of control he had tried to hit the teacher. But I had no problem at home with his behavior. So finally I had to acknowledge that he needed medicine to sit still and calm down to do work in class otherwise he would run all over the class and disrupt the other kids from learning. It was a hard pill to swallow but I had no choice. Right now he’s doing e learning at home I have issues trying to get him to go to sleep at night. It’s not easy I want to raise him in the right way. I want him to know the sky is the limit there is nothing to hard to accomplish. You have to be determined and to stay focus set goals for your self and your life. Right now we’re dealing with the Cov-19 crisis we have to accept the fact that this is our new normal for years to come we have to reevaluate our lives and our finances. A lot has changed and we have to be willing to change as well.
