Raising a Family
Starting Over Again
"I thought I was going to go home, but I met my second husband."
"I [worked as a nurse] for a while, at Piedmont Hospital, and then I had Erik. It was a little hard being a nurse and caring for a baby, if you want to do it the 'real' way, you know, close nursing and being there yourself, so I learned to be a preschool teacher, which was sort of fun, and helped, you know, start a little preschool in Druid Hills.
I was married to my first husband in the church where I was baptized and confirmed, and married in. And [sixteen years later] he found somebody else and he moved to Seattle, so I thought I was going to go home, but I met my second husband. He was also a bicyclist, so there we go.
And then I had another son, and that’s Chris."
