We are excited to share the third and final interview in our Caregiving During COVID series. I truly enjoyed speaking with Millie and hearing about her caregiving journey with her mom during Covid while a mom of four!
Millie’s mom passed away shortly after the filming of this interview and we dedicated this video in loving memory of her with a special tribute at the end.
We are honored to have been a small part of their journey together and appreciate the opportunity to share the love these two shared.

Millie’s Bio: I find it kind of difficult to write a short bio explaining the bond I have with my mom. This type of love story doesn’t come around often.
From my earliest memories as a child, I knew My mom was my purpose in this life. My mom would always tell me this magical story of how she found out she was pregnant with me. She thought she was going through menopause since she was 42, but when she went to the doctor, he said nope your pregnant Margaret. Her pregnancy with me had many complications. She was Rh negative, and I was Rh positive, her blood was killing me. I needed several blood transfusions while still in her uterus. I was born premature, jaundiced, not feeding properly, and placed in the NICU. Because I survived all odds, my mom decided to name me Milagro which means miracle in Spanish.
I remember telling her when I was little that the reason God gave me to her was that I’m supposed to take care of her. I was only around 7 years old so I truly didn’t know what that meant or what it would look like. I just knew there was a reason why I survived, and I knew it was to care for my mom.
You see, our relationship goes way beyond the 9 months that I was her full-time caregiver. I was the chosen one for her. God poured blessings and favor into my life to help me walk in my purpose. God used everything that was meant to stop me as fuel to guide me.
My mom has been my other half, my partner in crime, and my best friend since before I was even born. All that I am, I owe to my mother. My identity rests solely and firmly on this. I am my mother’s keeper.
