Elizabeth loved her parents dearly and showed great compassion and care for them all throughout her life. Her parents on the other hand, may have loved her, but they were not fully capable of taking care of her and her sister the way they needed to be taken care of.

Liz’ parents were rarely in their right mind to consistently reinforce the importance of school or necessitate attendance and performance. They were incapable of being role model parents or anything close and as a result the usefulness of school was not strongly present to Liz. Furthermore, whenever Liz did attend school it was majority filled with bad experiences. Any money that came in contact with her parents were spent on cocaine instead of food, plumbing, clothes or anything else essential. Liz was bullied for being unkempt, smelly and overall… Living in poverty with

I want to start out by saying that Janet Fazio is my current favorite person. I’ll explain. But first a little background for any new readers: I’m a new mom and triathlete (still breastfeeding) of an 11-month-old daughter (who does not yet sleep through the night) who works full-time (pumps at least two times a day), commutes three days a week, and owns a high-energy Vizsla dog that needs 5 to 10 miles of exercise per day. All this = very busy, little down time and too much coffee. So having my husband out of town for work hasn’t been easy (I have a newfound respect for single parents).
