Family Photos: On being proud of your parents
first few photos from a special photo album about my father's life. If there was one thing I was always sure of growing up, it was that my father was proud of me. He never missed an opportunity to say, "Good job" or "Way to go," and I think a large part of my self-esteem and self-confidence comes from those early experiences.
my mom and how proud I am of her strength in the wake of my father's suicide; she's truly been so amazing over the last 10 years. As for my father? Well, my proud moment came in 2001. After some 20 years, my father earned his Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. It had been a tough and long road at times, as he could only take a couple classes at a time while he and my mom were raising a family and tending to my surgeries.
