In our interview with Cody she talked a lot about knowing her “why”. I never really thought about my motivation for being successful in quite that way before. Pinpointing my “why” and keeping that in mind as I work to grow my business has been so helpful.
For me, my son Holden tops the list.
Chris and I adopted Holden from India in April 2013, and becoming parents has changed everything for us. I wake up with so much more focus and determination than I ever had before. There is this fierceness inside of me that wants to provide everything for him.
In Holden's case, providing every opportunity looks a little bit different than it does for most children. Holden has a condition called arthrogryposis. In his case, it affects his ankles, hips, knees, and the muscles in his legs. He is unable to walk right now, although we are hopeful that someday he may do so with some assistance. Holden will need an adaptive car when he's ready to drive.
We would really love to take him to an intensive physical therapy school where we've heard more can be accomplished in one month than most places accomplish in a year. There are many things that cost real money that we are working hard to provide for him. In addition, this social little boy would desperately love to have a little brother or sister!
Beyond that, for Holden's and my sake, we would love to bring husband & daddy Chris home for good. Chris is a military pilot, and we've just made it through his first deployment. Most likely there will be several more to come. I am working as hard as I can to provide the financial security for my family that means that Chris can come home for good someday.
He's my “why”
