A Mothers Love

A mother’s love is like no other love on earth, and can make a person do things

Everyone else and even she did not expect her to be able to do. This essay is about my

Mom and her struggle to help me and my brother become the people we are today.

Everyone told her that she could never do it, that she could never make it in a big city,

But she proved them wrong.

My moms name is Marcia Tula, she was born in Santiago, Chile. She and my

Grandma lived there until my mom was 16. After that my grandpa decided to move to

Ecuador where my mom met my dad Gonzalo Martinez. My dad was very in to the party

Scean and so was my mom until at the age of 18 my mom got pregnant with my brother

Roberto Martinez. Once my mom gave birth she slowed her life down and everything

Changed because now she was a mother.

My dad loved her very much but they were both young and my dad was still

Immature so he kept on with his party life. One Day my father got in a terrible car

Accident and broke every bone in his face because of a drunk driver, but my mom loved

Him and stuck by his side regardless. My mom tried to make her marriage work and

stuck With my dad during his party life. At 21 my mom got pregnant once again and gave

birth To me. My dad slowed down a bit after the accident and but he never completely

gave Up the party life.

After a while my mom decided she wouldn’t put up with my dad’s life stile any

Longer, so they split up and my mom decided to come live in the USA with me and

Roberto, leaving everything she knew behind. My grandma had previously moved to

Los Angeles, California after my grandpa passed away so we had a place to stay. My

Mom began working at a telemarketing company called Lexicon, where she started off as

A receptionist. She did a great job and made friends quick. Her managers thought the

World of her and she won awards for her great work with the company.

Every day she would take 3 buses to get to work and 3 buses to get back to the

House. She was relentless in her efforts to get us out of the bad neighborhood we lived in

So she worked extra hours and longer nights than anybody else in the company. After a

Long time she saved up money to buy a car and finally she could drive to work. A couple

Months later her manager promoted her to sales person and gave her a raise. My mom

Kept working very hard and as a result of this we finally moved out of the bad

Neighborhood we used to live in and moved to Beverly Hills.

While we were moving my mom fell down a flight of stairs and broke her foot,

But a broken foot is no match for a mothers love. My mom went to work with a broken

Foot because she knew me and my brother depended on her for food and shelter. So she

Took no time off and just continued going to work. I and my brother started going to

New schools and my mom was much closer to Lexicon now. At work my mom met

Another salesman from Argentina named Christian Gulisano.

They became good friends at work and little by little they became closer and

Closer. Chris would come over and visit us sometimes and help my mom out from time

to Time. He would even take care of my brother and I while my mom was at work. Chris

Found his way into our hearts and became like a father figure to me and my brother.

After A while my mother was once again promoted to supervisor.

My mom worked day and night for my brother and I for about a year or two, and

We had lots of problems in school. Learning a new language was no easy task, but

She pulled us through it all with the help of Chris and my grandma. A year later my

Mother was once again promoted to manager and started making a good amount of
