Angela Sigman has about two days each week where her breaks from work and school are long enough for her to see her 2-year-old daughter while she’s awake.
Sigman, 18, capitalizes on these hours as best she can, playing with Arianna and taking her to the zoo. Sigman sees Arianna every day, but most of the time it’s in the early morning or late in the evening, when Sigman is getting up and getting ready for school or getting home from work.
She spends three hours at Clark-Pleasant Academy almost every day, where she’s working to earn her high school diploma. And she recently started working five nine-hour shifts at the Franklin United Methodist Community, a retirement center in Franklin, where she helps take care of the residents.
