I’ll never forget the day I found out I had a little baby growing inside me. I was excited, nervous, and terrified all at the same time. The anticipation of being a mother created a new sense of responsibility in my life and put me in a space where I was more aware of my actions. The thought that this little soul would rely on me for everything was overwhelming. At the time, I was 16 and felt like a child myself. Yet, I knew it was up to me to set a good example and teach her all that she needed to know to live in this big, scary, amazing world. Looking back 21 years later, I have to say I now realize I am the student and not the teacher that I thought I would be.
Vanessa has taught me so much about life, love, and forgiveness. My life was forever changed the day this sweet little girl was born. The last 21 years have gone so fast and now she’s an amazing beautiful woman. When I look at her, I feel comfort in knowing that I must have done something right. She is utterly amazing and I’m blessed and honored to be her mother.
Happy 21st birthday
