I have always known this to be true. As a single mom I needed and welcomed the village to help me raise my beautiful boy. My sisters were absolutely second moms to my son. 

There are really no words to describe the help and support my parents gave me. Suffice it to say they were there every step of the way, from the really big things to the small everyday tasks of dad picking Tony up from the bus stop and mom making sure he had after school snacks. Their home was where he felt safe and loved, supported and held, as if it was his own.
