Laurie Ann Shawler
August 30, 2020
I’ll never forget the day I met my “New Family”; my new “Mom”. It was such a daze for me, being 7 years old and coming from where I did.
I was scared, anxious, nervous, timid... but I was welcomed by my mom Laurie.
She said, “Hi, Im Laurie, you can call me ‘Mom’ or whatever you want honey”. I looked at AJ, my brother, and he gave me the “go ahead”!
“I call her Mom” AJ said.
And I called her mom from that moment on. She always made me feel loved, welcome and included me in everything without a doubt in her head. For that I’m forever grateful and beyond blessed to have gotten to know her and be a part of her life. To call her Mom, sharing happy, sad and all kinds of life changing moments! Moments I’ll cherish forever. She taught me how to love again unconditionally. I love you momma.. you’ll Forever be a part of me and in my heart. Give AJ hugs and love from me. See you later. Relax now💚💋💚💋
