Today is my mom's birthday. She would be 66 this year. We lost her when she was 62, so young in todays terms. Life isn't guaranteed. She worked hard, she played hard and she loved deeply. She did the best she could do. She was beaten down emotionally and did everything she could to be the best mother and grandmother that she could be.
Today I am so excited and proud to announce a project that has been in the works for many many years. There will be more details in a future post. If I could speak to my mother face to face today I would say this, "Mom, this project is dedicated to you. Dedicated to all you endured as a mother, as a cancer fighter and as a survivor. You knew that one day I would expose him and all that he did to you and your babies. That I would fight him and others like him and what they do to children. The bill, "Child Abuse Accountability Enhancement Act," is now on the presidents' desk for signature, still a little unreal. I promised you that I would share the struggles through your cancer battle and the realities of what you went through, in hopes to help others. This is dedicated to you, Mom. Happy Birthday! I hope to impact someone somewhere and encourage them to find their voice and never give up. Thank you for being the mother that were. Happy happy 66th birthday.
I love you. XOXO"
"BRAVE and unbroken" will be released in January 2018. Happy Birthday Mom. xoxo
