NATIONAL DIVERSITY AWARDS 2021 – SHORTLIST NOMINEE !!!!!!!!!!
Oh wow… I don’t know where to begin.
This whole week has been like walking through a dream. Nothing feels real …
Please, please don’t think I am boasting or showing off in any way because that’s not who I am . I’m just all about family and the beautiful, awesome kids and young adults I devote my life to.
For the first time in my entire adult life I feel seen and I’ve just cried bucket loads …it is such a strange and unbelievably gorgeous feeling.
I see so , SO much in others and do this work with all my heart and soul, just wanting to make a difference for children who have such difficulty in being seen, heard, having a value or belonging .
I’VE BEEN SHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL DIVERSITY AWARDS 2021 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all of you who voted for me and believe in that I do.
Thank you to all of you who have been milestones on my journey and to those of you who walked beside me when I jumped off that cliff with nothing but faith , terror , desperation, a bit of tenacity and £50 in my pocket.
My heart could burst with gratitude !
Thank you ALWAYS to Tess Eagle Swan for so kindly nominating me in the first place. Her own work with her incredible therapy dog, Kratu, is phenomenal , as is her amazing journey.
By nominating me, Tess has changed my life. My soul feels like it has somehow shifted. I have been invisible for over two decades and she has changed that : I feel a little bit worthy – and worthwhile – for the first time.
Out of over 50,000 nominees ….how ?!?
I had to call the National Diversity Awards because I was so worried there had been a mistake and I didn’t want to post anything until I was absolutely sure.
All I hope is that this gives me a greater platform from which to fight for all these children.
I feel like a Mum to millions !!!
After my long, long and extraordinary journey, this feels beyond belief …
