As you sleep I sit here and think about our journey thus far. While it seems like ages ago I was sending you to Pizzo Elementary at the age of 3; I must have blinked because now here we are, your first day of high school couple weeks shy of turning 14.
To you, maybe this seems just like any other first day but it isn’t. It’s special. High school in itself is special. It marks an incredible four year journey of self discovery, creating lifelong friendships and memories you will cherish for the rest of your life. My one true hope is that you get all that you can out of high school and all that it has to offer. So when you graduate in four years, you can look back and say “dang that was the time of my life”.
Be kind. Be smart. Be ambitious. Be bold. Hold your head up even through the bad days.
You are among peers who understand your struggles. They understand your journey and most importantly they will have an innocent and loving heart like you.
I am so proud of you Avah and all that you’ve overcome and continue to face. You never cease to amaze me.
Love Mommy ❤
Here’s to you and the Class of 2023
