I became a caregiver to care for my godfather who I love with all my heart. Caring for him gives me the opportunity to do for him what I didn't have the opportunity to do for my own father who was taken from me years ago. Caring for him has given me such a since of pride and joy in my life that nothing else could. Each day I work with him and see his strength increase, his confidence build, his love of life grow, my heart grows with him. I am 54 years old and a student at ITT Technical Institute in Houston Texas. I live with my God-parents and am a care giver to my God-Father whom I love very much. I plan to use my education to further the research in medical rehabilitation of senior disabilities. Our Seniors are a precious and valuable source of love and education to our future and deserve our love and respect. All my life I have been taught to love and respect the elders of my family. My grandmother was not only the matriarch of my family, she was my best friend and my hero.
