  1. My mom and I just read it and enjoyed it very much. The only part she was nit-picky about was that you forgot to mention that you also went to the Extended Day Care at the Mini Center.

    What a beautiful story. I am a Epiphany parent alumni and i do remember your family. We started in 1995 its one of our best experiences. It truly was a family environment. My oldest graduated from Epiphany in 2000 went on to Amat and Cal State Fullerton. She was a dance major but loves to write. I always thank Her teachers and the sisters at Epiphany for being such great role models. She now lives in Australia and writes a blog called Valeri down under. I cant wait to share this one with her. Is there a way i can get this in a hard copy. It’s something i would like to put in my keepsakes. Since you know Ms Gutierrez I’m sure you have enjoyed her Moms delicious tamales! Keep up the great work cant wait to read more.
    Yours Truly,

    • Thank you so much for writing, Mia! I’m so glad you enjoyed the piece. There’s no hard copy of the essay, although SEMAP has discussed the possibility of one day publishing all of these in a volume of some kind. For now, you would have to print it out. My book is available in hard copy–you’d just order it from B&N, Amazon, or another online retailer. How cool that your daughter lives in Australia!
