    Jackie, you are one incredible women! I am in tears big big tears trying to focus enough to write this. You have scooped Olivia up and taken her under your wing creating this beautiful blog. As I am reading each post I cry more with each one, then I read yours and how all of this (Olivia) has inspired you to do this for others in her situation, and I am sobbing! You are a beautiful person inside and out!
    I knew the day I found out I was pregnant with Olivia that she was special, I just never dreamed just how special until I had her and watched her grow. She was always beyond her years, and took the “underdogs” under her wings to let them know how special they were too. I find myself learning from her instead of the other way around a lot! I am blessed beyond words that she is my daughter and we are so blessed to have met you and have you in our lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing such special, incredible moments and telling her story. Your a gift!ReplyCancel
