Putting Her Children First
November 30, 2016
Tia Heath takes three buses every morning to get to her job at Amazon in Dundalk. Because it is such a long commute, she has to wake up at 3 a.m. just to get to work by 7 a.m. It is especially hard for Tia waiting for the bus when the weather is bad.
Tia is a mother to five children. Her eight-year-old son has ADHD and mood disorder, so he has to see a therapist multiple times a month. It is difficult taking him to his appointments since she does not have reliable transportation. Her other son has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair, so it is difficult taking him on the bus.
Tia will use her car to have new experiences with her children. She plans to take them to Chuck E Cheese and the movies. She is also going to put her son with ADHD into a sport to better manage his condition. Tia is going to let her children decorate the car.
