Dreams Do Come True...

...Yesterday was an amazingly bitter sweet day.  Mini and I attended a press conference where it was announced that she is on her way to being cured of sickle cell disease. This is historic...so many lives will be saved because of Mini's bravery... Those of you who follow my blog are aware of my struggle and fight to save my daughter's life...for 14 years...not just my struggle but my families struggle too...Yesterday I just kept thinking that the one person who was there with me step by step in the trenches, my mom...she wasn't by my side to bask in his glory...and that saddened me...I know this was her prayer also...She loved my Mini so much...She took such pride in her strength and beauty...So, yes...this is wonderful but, I miss my mother...and I would give almost anything to hear her say, "I'm proud of you...you did it."  Yes we did mom...yes we did.


I think my cousin Toya summed Mini up best when she sent me this email yesterday....


How amazing! God is a miracle working God. Hunter has greatness written into her DNA!! She's blessed beyond measure. Such strength and already making history at only 14 years old! Her future has Blessed written all over it. I want to be just like her when I grow up! Lol- Love ya cuz!
