I can’t believe that you are a senior. When you first came into our lives you were entering kindergarten. I can even remember the first time I saw you. Your mom and I had just met at Lions Park, and as we chatted away, you and Elaine played by the gazebo. You were adorable then. On the shy side..only saying a few things to me when prompted:-) As the years past, and our families spent more time together, we came to see the incredibly smart, talented, courageous and beautiful young woman you are. None of us could ever imagine the pain and suffering you would have to endure these past few years as you continue to battle against the side effects of a deadly drug. You have shown such grace and poise as you have lived this ordeal and helped to spread the news of the potential deadly effects of HPV Vaccines. I am beyond proud of your courage to get up each time it beats you down. It’s so obvious that you have a wonderful spirit and I am honored to be another momma in your life. It was such a great day photographing you, and having your mom and Elaine along just made it even more special. I am so looking forward to seeing the great things that you do in your life as the future unfolds. There is NOTHING that can stand in your way, sweet girl.
Love you lots,
