17 years ago, this lovely person came into my life...
...and nothing has been the same since, THANK GOD.
My life has been filled with motorcycle helmets and pig tails, mascara and mud fights, adventure and mayhem, softball and cheer leading, cuddles and climbing...full on balls to the wall whirlwind fun, tons of her trouble buddies and hours of lovely heart-wrenching worrying that comes with all of the above.
She's taught me patience, acceptance and how to rise above circumstances that simply are what they are. She embodies confidence, fun, spontaneity and take-me-as-I-am.
She's amazing...and I'm so lucky that she chose me to be her momma.
