There will never be enough words in this world to properly express my gratitude to fate and the universe for letting me keep her. I wasn’t done learning from her, loving her, or being loved by her at 15, and I’m still not at 22.
She is my hero, my strength, my compassion, my humility. I am the product of someone who is capable of defying the odds multiple times in life, and still manages to get through it all with a smile.
She is my heartbeat, and I’m so grateful for the fact that I will never know what it was like to grow up without one.
