I love being a mom and it's my number one role in life to raise her to follow God.
- Pacifica is almost 4 and named after grandpa Pacifico.
- If I wasn't a teacher I would have been in the military
-When Pacifica is older, we will travel to places and surf together, like I used to do before she was born.
-My goal is to buy her house so that she can have a backyard to grow up in.
