I am human.

I have emotions.

I have a hard shell on the outside....but inside I am just mush. 

I love big and fight big.  This is what comes along with having a HUGE passionate heart. 

I am outspoken....


....and as my husband can attest to...at times relentless!

I'm protective of my loved ones (as most of us are).  I would do ANYTHING for my close family and friends. 

Over time, I have learned that sharing blood with someone doesn't make you a family. 

I've also learned that having no relation doesn't mean you aren't family!

I am tired of feeling hurt, rejected, ignored!

I have come to realize that the only people I want in my life and my daughter's life are those who want and need us in theirs. 

It's truly that simple!
