“You try as a parent. You love beyond reason. You fight beyond endurance. You hope beyond despair.
You never think, until the very last moment, that it still might not be enough.”
Lisa Gardner, Live to Tell

“Once, I was my mother's daughter. Now I am my daughter's mother.”
Lisa Gardner

“Who do you love?

Who do you love?”
Lisa Gardner
