I am honored to have been chosen to be your holiday mom. I am also a teacher and a mom to a teenage son. Many young people come through my classroom and many teenagers come through my front door. My greatest hope is that my students and visitors feel accepted and safe. I extend that to you.
It is my belief everyone should be loved and accepted for who they are. Self-acceptance is hard for everyone especially when you are young, don’t worry it gets better when you older. Just remember to love yourself even when it sometimes feels that others don’t understand. When people don’t understand they sometimes don’t accept. But, overtime they will understand.
During this holiday season the greatest gift is to love you. Smile every day, take a deep breath and stand up tall. You are a gift and a treasure on this world.
Your adopted Mom
