  • How true it is: if I could keep you little. The time passed so quickly that I had with my daughter. There are definitely things that I would have done differently but will have to be satisfied with the fact that I did the best that I could at that time. This book definitely speaks to my heart, and I would so love to win it.

    Thank you,
