I have a niece who I consider my daughter. I got custody of her when she was nine years old. My twin sister was her mother and my twin sister passed away at that time. We are almost eleven years from that date. I raised Keely until she was 18 years old. She is now finishing up her second year at a major university in Ohio, and she is doing very very well. She is always smiling, optimistic and glad to be alive. She is grateful for chances and she never takes anyone or anything for granted. She is courageous and she is brave. She is the strongest woman I have ever met. With only 19 years under her belt, she is just about the wisest soul there is. God bless her. I love this girl.
