WELCOME TO THE WORLD my little darling. May you grow and succeed. May you touch the lives of others. May people respect you and cherish you. And perhaps, when you’re a little older, may you go forth and multiply.
My wish for you, little one, is that someone, somewhere, will open your covers;
turn your pages;
learn from your words;
marvel at your images;
and be inspired by your story.
And your little story will grow, and inform, and shape their imagination;
spark their curiosity;
ignite their passions;
and encourage their own journey.
Thank you to everyone–editors, illustrators, publishers, and family who made this labor of love possible.
