Making It In High Heels

Inspiring Stories by Women for Women of All Ages

The first entry I would like to make is with regard to a young woman by the name of Antonia.  Her story grabbed me right from the get go. “Mommy, you’re my best friend.” is how the chapter begins.

Being a single mother of two fantastic kids is the obvious connection for me!

Antonia’s story is deep, real and extremely moving.  I could relate to a lot of what she has gone through, but what is more, it inspired me to have my daughter (who is 14)  read it as well.  A reflection for me thru commonality, and a lesson for my child!  Thanks Antonia!

For those of you lucky enough to have gotten a copy of this book at the launch in August, I am sure you will agree that Antonia’s story is one which tears at your heartstrings.   For those of you who have not yet read the book, let me take this opportunity to tell you that you simply MUST!  I invite you to pre-order a copy thru this site, and additional invite you to read a little section of Antonia’s story…..

~~  ” Mommy, you’re my best friend.”

Those words, coming from my four-year-old son, are like gold to me. If you were to tell me, ten years ago, that I would be raising this perfect little boy on my own I would have laughed in your face.  My first thought would have been, “yeah right, my family would kill me if I came home pregnant.” ~~

I can not give it all away, but the story goes into the trials of a young girl, the pressures of youth, a tragic experience, feelings of being alone, family issues thru a teens perspective, and the realities that come with the choices we make.

Truly a touching story from a strong and inspirational woman!!
