My parents, Craig and Laurie Ulberg, deserve the Sunshine Award for multiple reasons. Firstly, I had a beautiful son at the young age of 17. Although my parents were not thrilled, they supported me endlessly and unconditionally. In the three years since my son’s birth, my parents have been the only babysitters he has ever known and they never said no to a chance to spend time with him. Because of my parents’ help and support I am able to continue my education and work to support my son and provide him with a bright future. Additionally, my father works 50 plus hours in a typical week with his appraisal and auction business despite having chronic back pain and his own unmet medical needs. My mother is a homemaker and spends her days helping with her grandson and providing care for her adorably stubborn father. Growing up, my parents always taught my two brothers and myself to “pay it forward” and that no matter how little we have, we can always find the time or resources to help others in need. Both Craig and Laurie Ulberg are highly deserving of the Sunshine Award for putting others first and always doing their utmost to instill the best of morals and values in their children and grandchildren.
