To my daughter, Hope.

You were only a far away thought in my mind when I initially dreamed of earning my doctorate. I found you near the end of this journey, and now I cannot imagine my life without you. I am so happy you are with me as I achieve this goal.

You have helped me to discover new depths of inspiration, love and compassion. You have given me a new life that I joyfully step into as I end this program.

My hope is that this project will inspire you to realize and know in your heart that you can achieve your heart’s desire, no matter how your journey begins. I dedicate this to you as my promise to always be your biggest cheerleader and champion in realizing your dreams.

Momma loves you.
