Mitchell– Without you, I wouldn’t have this incredible girl.
Aunt Deedee– Standing by me through the good and hard times, being my example of what a phenomenal mother looks like. “Every day you save my life.”.
My Family– for loving us and never quitting on me though I disappointed you many times. I love you all.
Beth– my best friend, my rock and my diary. Thank you for reminding me that it is darkest before the dawn. Thank you for encouraging me to write this story and helping me make it available for others to read.
Kevin– you are the epitome of a husband and daddy. I am so grateful god gave us you. I wouldn’t want to do this life beside anyone else.
Kevin’s family– for loving Hope and I as your own from the start.
Johnnie– Just for being who you are. You’ve become a very close friend to me. Your love for Hope is incredible.
Perhaps you are in the midst of a journey you never could have prepared for or maybe you are about to embark on the wildest ride of your life and you still don’t know. My wish is to inspire you, to expose the raw, real, stripped away heart inside my chest and to share with you Hope.
My name is Stormi Boland on October 26th 2006 my world was shattered, flipped upside down, and was given purpose. I gave birth to my first child, a baby girl I named ‘Hope’ long before I knew she would inspire it. This is my journey, Hope’s journey in my words. These are my inner most thoughts and the way I have felt in every moment along the way.
