On this day 6 years ago I officially woke up the founder of The Superhero Project- Non Profit Foundation. In my wildest dreams, I never would have seen this path coming. When the boys were admitted to the NICU and spent a month there, I was at a really low point. I was upset, stressed and overwhelmed. It was the first time in a really long time I felt completely out of control, and I hated how that made me feel. Today, my team and I proudly provide resources, love and most importantly ,the gift of hope for thousands of families each year. I am grateful for the friendships and relationships I have developed along the way.
While most days are filled with Justin Gallagher reminding me to stop overbooking myself, I still hold true with the notion that if something is important to you.. you always find the time to fit it in. The last year has been incredibly tough, I have found so much joy realizing that this gift of helping others truly matters. It has helped me have clarity when things feel heavy. He has been my rock and biggest supporter even when I doubted myself.
If you are seeing this post, thank YOU for not deleting me and sticking through 6 years of superhero obsessed posts that help me bring joy to families like mine who experience the NICU every single day.
One day, I hope Connor and Curran can stand up and say proudly… my mom did that:)
