I have been trying to make this fundraiser happen.

Its for a nonprofit, no kill shelter I adopted my dogs from. My last dog just passed at 18 years old and I wanted to honor them in someway and help the shelter as well.
Well the fundraiser web page asks you to tell a little bit about yourself and ask questions like… Who is Your Hero? That one kinda stopped me in my tracks and really made me think? WHO IS MY HERO?! I thought and thought and finally decided. Its my birth mother. She could have had an abortion but instead she sacrificed her body for 9 months and then did the most selfless thing ever… gave me to a family that could give me the life she couldn’t. I was blessed to finally meet her at 25 and she’s wonderful. I look like her. Our personalities are very similar and I love her to bits. I can never really repay her for what she did for me. Christine, if you ever read this, I love you and YOU ARE MY HERO!
