I thank God Almighty, the creator of heaven and earth that I am not alone. I always looked up and said "Father forgive me, I am holding on to you". This book is written in English, my second language. I am not afraid of how bad my English may be. It's time for me to move on and accomplish what I started. I want to let you, the reader know that you are important to me. That is why I want to introduce you to my book and to let you know how God provided me with all I needed, and that was help and one more chance. Every good thing that's happening to me now is not by my own power, but by God's. The only person I am very close to now is Jesus because he makes my dreams come true. He never let me fail, he is always by my side, not because I am a widow or afraid but because he is my Savior, he loves me, and I am his child. I hope you all enjoy reading my book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

About the Author
"This book tells a tale of great hope and sorrow. Its author is a hero and its message is timely and important".
Abeny Mathayo Kucha is a single mother who survived the civil war and genocide in her homeland of South Sudan and immigrated to the United States. Here she become a Certified Nursing Assistant and worked at the Mayo clinic for almost ten years as a surgical processing tech. She is the mother of two daughters, Atong the oldest and Aduot, who unfortunately died in the war at the young age of four. Atong recently graduated from law school in May 2012 and her mother is proud to say what a joy it was to see her accomplish her dream of becoming a lawyer because few refugees' children finish high school, let alone attend college. Abeny also has three sons Kut, Jok, and Mathayo and one grandson, Malachi. She lives in Lincoln, NE with her sons while her daughter lives in Minnesota with her son Malachi. This is Abeny Kucha's first book about her life while living in Sudan and the journey she endured to get to the U.S. Back in Sudan, women are not considered important or sometimes seen as a "nobody". If two men were to meet up with each other and notice a woman walk by, it's as if he didn't see her at all, or refer to her as just a woman, worthless. Most Sudanese men would be surprised to find out that a Sudanese woman had the courage to write a book. It is the author's pleasure to let not only the Sudanese women, but all women realize how important they are in this world just as much as the men. This book is a way she wanted to praise God for all he has done for her and to show people that if you put your mind to something you can be successful, even if English is your second language.
