Portrait of Alma

At the interview, Alma was due in only two weeks for her first pregnancy with a baby girl. She found out during a regular ultrasound and had chosen not to get the 3D ultrasound. Although it was her first child, this baby not the first grandchild for her parents; she had several nieces and nephews.

Alma was super excited, although sometimes a little tired. She was taking both birthing and parenting classes.

Alma was born in San Fernando Valley and went to Grant High School. She went to Mirabella Beauty College which is now closed because of legal reasons. Alma worked for a beauty supply store and did a little bit of everything in the beauty field, but she tried to mostly stick to hair coloring and cutting hair, which she did out of her home.

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet."
