My mom is my best friend and throughout my life has been my biggest cheerleader. Being a single parent and reinventing yourself after 18 years of marriage isnt easy. Even some of our family members turned their cheek to be of support. Our family is the family we choose. My mom is a beautiful person and a true artist with an angelic spirit. People she has never even meant have found inspiration in her photography, art, and the positive reflection she naturally exudes. She chooses to speak up when others don’t. My mom is the definition of an Open Heart.
