I received an email from a colleague the other day, and it put everything about the raffle, the fund-raising, into perspective for me.
I do believe in the proverb that it takes a village to raise a child...maybe because I had such a loving community when I was growing up. I admire your strength in reaching out to your community for support in your journey; I wish we could all be a little more open to each other. Thank you for being a role model.
And thank you, Erica, for such kind and supportive words.
