Martha’s Drastic Change
Martha was seven years old when she experienced a real change in her young life.
Her mother, dying of cancer, insisted that Martha be taken to her maternal grandparents to raise, so her father drove over to their house after his wife passed away, literally dropped her off and told her grandparents that she was theirs to raise!
Martha had two older brothers, however, they stayed with their father.
Martha’s grandparents took very good care of her, however, she never received the personal nurturing that every child needs and deserves, and this drastic change in her life was devastating for her.
At the age of fourteen, Martha experienced another change in her life when her grandparents passed away and she went back to live with her father.
At the age of twenty, she fell in love with a very handsome, educated young man, married him within a few months and they had nine children of which were five girls, four boys and each boy served in the military….army, navy, air force, and marine corp.
