Putting Her Children First

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 3a.m. just to get to work by 7a.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.
