Most of all I want her to be who she's going to be. I want her to be true to what she is. I want her to embrace it or change it if she wants to. But I want her to know that her father and I love her every single day of her life no. matter. what.
I have tons and tons of dreams for my little girl. But that's what they are: my dreams, my hopes, my wishes and my desires. As all media outlets are flooded with stories of teen and now child suicides as a result of bullying, all I want for her is know that her father and I support her; that we love her, that there is nothing she could ever ever tell us that would make us love her less. I want her to know that we don't care who she is, who she loves, what she's passionate about so long as she is healthy and happy. I want her to know that there is absolutely nothing in this world that supersedes my dream for her to live a long healthy happy life.
Chris and I were among the lucky children in this world, growing up in loving homes that provided us support to follow our hearts and follow her dreams. I hope that Evie inherits that from her father and me too.
