Humans of Downey - Veronica


"One of the times I like to think back on with smiles is my days in high school. I miss those days now. Everything is different now. Back in high school, I just wanted to graduate, work, make money, and have a car. I never thought about those days as I was going through them and now I kind of regret it. I mean, now I'm married, I have a son, there's just too many things I have to take care of. I just feel sometimes like I have too many responsibilities and I want to go back to those other days when the burdens were lighter. I miss those days. But then...

"The first time I saw my son (he'll be two next week) I was so grateful, so happy. I never thought I was going to love a person like I love my son. It's hard to explain what happened. When I held my son in my arms in the hospital, everything changed. I didn't want to go back to the old days anymore. He just changed my life completely. I love being with him, spending time with him, seeing him grow. I can still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. His first word was mom."
