As a mother to an 8-year-old girl, she is my world, my everything, and my motivation everyday to get up in the morning and fight the fight will doing my part in making sure that she lives in a world that she feels safe in. I want her to be happy and healthy and I want her always to reach her highest potential as she navigates her way through this thing called life. I mean, I’m sure plenty of parents would say the same thing, right?
