My name is Rainelle Two Bulls. My parents are the late Norman Two Bulls and Darlene Weasel Bear. I am the youngest of five siblings. After the passing of my father when I was a small child, I was raised in a single parent home. My mother is a very strong, fierce, respectful, loving mother. Those same values I use on a day to day basis.

I am also a single mother of 5. My children age from 17 to 2 years old. I lived on the Pine Ridge Reservation until 2015, when I moved to Rapid City. My decision to move to Rapid City was to provide better job opportunities and find a good, suitable career for myself. My hope for my children is that the city living gives them the same opportunities. My older boys are in high school and junior high grades. They have been active members of Club for Boys. My two daughters are much younger. Attending elementary as well as daycare. When I became a permanent single mother, I had to put job opportunities on hold. I had to get what I could to support my children. My professional scope has been housekeeping and daycare provider, day care aide. As a mother, I always put my children before myself. I make sure they have a roof over their head, shoes on their feet, clothes on their back, and food in their stomachs. No matter how hard life challenges get I always, always go hard for my children. This year, I was hit with major challenges. I lost my father figure (my dads brother) in october.My mother is dealing with health issues, and I take steps back when I can to help her. Due to a lack of babysitters, I struggle with daycare. Which means I have to stay home from work. My vehicle recently gave out, so I have been struggling very hard to get my children to school, after-school activities, daycare, medical appointments when needed, groceries, there are times I miss work due to the vehicle issue.
