Growing up in the 1960's, my parents instilled in their six children the gift of love, respect, responsibility, kindness... and family time. Even though my family experienced hardships, struggles and sickness, my parents taught us faith and perseverance. To support the family, our father tirelessly worked odd jobs and our mother became the neighborhood babysitter. She shared her love and opened our home to so many young children.
As role models, my parent's entrepreneurial spirit and endearing family values planted the creation of Character Avenue.
