From small beginnings come great things…

I’ll never forget the day that changed my life, forever. It was October 8, 1983. It was a Saturday. I knew this day would come, eventually. I just didn’t realize how much of an impact it would have on my life. It changed every one of my beliefs and made all my fears more real. It gave me a strength I never dreamed I would have. It also gave me a courage so deep, I could slay dragons without pause.

It was the day you were born.

You are the one who transformed me from a regular person to something for which I had absolutely no training…a mother.

My life took on a whole new meaning.
