Be The Real ____.

Family
Tammi is a saint. A modern day Mother Teresa. That is not an exaggeration. I’d never met Tammi before, but I found her son Mikey on Instagram and reached out. Next thing I knew, I was driving two hours east of LA to her house in Redlands. When I got there she had six kids living with her. Only two are her own. The little girl from my photos goes in and out of Tammi’s house. Her mom isn’t able to take care of herself, let alone a kid, so Tammi steps up. Tammi’s house is constantly full of people and she clearly knows that the concept of family is stronger than blood. She takes care of the people she loves, and there are no lack of rooms and beds in her house. Anyone that needs help, gets it. She lives under a very simple code of ethics and treats people how she wants to be treated. She does not judge other people for what they have done in the past because she knows she would never want to be judged for her worst moments. She really believes it’s our responsibility to be there for other people. Not everyone has a family or community, but everyone deserves one
