When I found out I was going to have a little girl, a lot of people at work were just completely wonderful about it; they threw me a baby shower, they were generous and kind and full of good wishes. But one particular woman’s reaction will stand out in my memory forever for being so genuine… Dee, Kelly’s mother, asked me, “So, is it a boy or girl?” When I replied, she clapped her hands together, threw her head back, squeezed her eyes shut and just exuded joy for me. After a few moments, she hugged me and, being the mother of two girls, she said “Now you’re in my world.”
Well, I’m pleased to share a piece of her world with you today. This is Dee’s elder daughter Kelly, an intelligent, strong, sophisticated lady who just graduated from Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders. The University of Georgia is lucky to be receiving this student in the fall. I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I enjoyed meeting this awesome girl.
