HER SITUATION: Isabella is a 30-year-old mother with diagnoses of bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and multiple sclerosis. She has four children ages 12, 8, 3 and 1. Isabella had to start over with her family, as her apartment had been condemned, and she had to immediately move out and leave most of her belongings. Isabella's primary goal is to focus on her kids and have them feel comfortable and happy in their new apartment. She always puts her kids' needs first, even with her painful physical challenges. Her dream is to take all of her kids on a family bike ride.
