A year ago on November 20th, I was able to thank someone that I wasn't sure I'd ever be able to say thank you too. Being grateful is one thing, but being able to personally thank someone for the difference they have made in your life is another. I was able to personally thank my birth - mother for the life that she gave to me. She gave me a body, she chose my parents, she gave me seeds of talent. She gave me life. Without her, I wouldn't be ME. So this thanksgiving, I'm especially grateful that I was able to personally thank my hero, my birth - mother, and my friend. Caprice, thank you once again for everything that you gave me! Happy Thanksgiving!
