I want to start by telling you that I am beyond proud of the woman that you are and the adult you will become. As a 17 year old girl I was so young and knew nothing about being a mother. From the moment I set eyes on you I was in love. I may not have known everything about being a mother but I knew I was going to protect you and I was going to provide for you. You are my heart! I worked hard, made sacrifices and pushed myself when at times I wanted to give up. You inspire me, you motivate me and I am blessed to call you my daughter.
I know college is a big step and leaving home can be both exciting and scary but I know you will be great, whatever path you choose. We have grown up together but its time for you to live your life for you. God has a purpose and a plan for you. Your life was not an accident. Stay close to God and remember no matter what I will always be here for you.
Love you Always and Unconditionally,
