Writing this book was an adventure I knew nothing about and was more rewarding than I ever imagined. None of this would have been possible without the support of my husband, Mike. You believed in me even when I thought my idea may be crazy. You never questioned the process, the costs, the time commitment and have supported me the entire way. I love you!
Colt Michael, you are my inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you do in this life. This world better watch out. A lot of obstacles have been put in your path, but you are crushing each and every one of them, one day at a time. Thank you for inspiring me to write a book about your journey and for showing me that anything is possible. We are going to touch many families’ lives with your story!
To Wyatt James, you have been the greatest big brother Colt could ever ask for and he is so very lucky to have you by his side. As a protector, a tutor, a cheerleader, a confidant, and so much more. You put his feelings above your own and are proud to do so. Not sure how dad and I got so lucky. You have had to stand in the wings as we navigate this space with Colt and you never get jealous. You just support him more. You are such a genuine human being and I love you with all my heart.
To my many family members that have encouraged me to keep going, I am thankful for you. Especially to my parents, “Mimi & Papa”, and my sister Ashley. Always reviewing, proofing and providing feedback from an outside perspective. You have put up with many group text messages and never complained. This book is better because of you!
