14 Young Adults On What Makes Them Immensely Proud Of Their Parents

Parents are known for being neutering and giving, they always complimenting us when we do something that makes them proud. They love us despite our hiccups along the way and through the heartaches we cause them. But as children, our parents also do things that make us extremely proud and have touched our hearts in a special way. Our parents are the role models we will continue to look up to when we are raising our own children and for that we will forever be thankful for the lasting memories of their strength and dedication.
