To The Superwoman In All of Us

Many of us endure so many ups in downs through the years. Yet, for some getting back up and dusting off is easier than for others. Imagine having your father murdered, a mom who is missing, and a child with special needs. Oh yeah...and having to spend days in jail for traffic tickets because you simply did not have the money to pay for them. This is Angela Martin's story.

Who is she? She was a 28-year-old contestant on the current season of American Idol until she was recently voted off. It was Angela's 3rd and final attempt at winning the title. She never gave up on her dream of becoming a recording artist despite the many obstacles she endured over the years. It is that spirit of resiliency that Ellen Degeneres saw in Angela, and for which she was rewarded. (Please watch the video below)

Sometimes life is challenging, and sometimes we want to give up. But staying focused on our ultimate goal will give us endurance during this fabulous journey called life.

P.S. Have you seen her mom? People with information about Viola Martin are being asked to call Glenwood police at 708-253-2420 or the "America's Most Wanted" hot line at 800-274-6388.

Happy Parenting,
