This was to be a book about a woman who literally gave her life to her children by helping to raise a number of her own siblings after the deaths of her parents by age sixteen. She then went on to raise all of her children by herself, but since her death in March of 2003, Ive decided to write about the benefits of raising three of her grandchildren to complete her legacy. This is a book to help young adults understand that they can achieve their personal goals, be it educationally, personally, and as parents if they attempt to do it right and with good intentions. This book is to remind young adults that having children is a grown up responsibility that is not to be taken lightly. This book also helps young ladies to love and respect themselves, and to not allow themselves to be taken advantage of. It shows young women that you could grow up, get a good education, learn from your mother and father, and marry a mate who loves you and is willing to be there for you. To be responsible parents who are everyday people, it takes commitment, determination, and not to be afraid to listen to those who could help you. Its hard for young adults to listen to those who could help, but as young people, it can only help you make your life better down the road. Im sure that most young mothers, who decide to give their children up for adoption, wouldnt if they had their childrens responsibility. As a young man, I wanted to give to my wife and children the things I didnt get and that my mother and the thing that my mother received, while she was growing up. All young adults have to do is believe in themselves, and I believe this book can help them do that.

About the author (2010)

What qualifies Theodore Wentz to write about being a successful father? Like our forty-fourth President, and millions of other children who were victims of being abandoned by one or both of their parents, this is an indescribable emptiness that will take you to your grave. In his case, it was his father who abused his mother, and his mother had to put him out for drinking and not being an example to his children. He'll never for as long as he lives forget her words “I'll raise these kids myself before I let you not be a positive role model to your boys”. His mother, to whom this book is dedicated, made the choice to do it alone, with five boys and one daughter from his father. She began working one or two jobs if necessary to feed, clothe, provide shelter, and raise them, believing in God and attending their local congregation and seeking the help of their elders in their congregation. In writing this book, he bring to the table a life long example of hard work, love for family, and a high respect for our most precious gift from God, our women. Theodore can look any young man and woman in the eye and tell them, with 31 years of parental experience, about seeing the value of being raised by a “be there” mom and that of his life experiences can help them be a responsible parent. No PHD of any kind could replace that wealth of experience.
