WOW! Preacher was right – you were meant for greatness! Thank you for posting a picture, it's wonderful to see that sparkling smile! Gorgeous lady! I'm writing specifically because of something you wrote " We weren't related by blood, we were related by love". I was adopted at birth and my family says "blood may be thicker than water, but love is thicker than blood." I glad we came to the same conclusion. I may borrow your take on it. absolutely beautiful. thank you for being brave enough to write your story down and share it. Thank you.
My mom bought your book for me this past Christmas. She heard you speaking on t.v. or the radio not sure but she knows I love to read. A fellow student from SDSU as well and in recovery. Your book is on point. I salute you sister and cant wait for another book. I sit waiting patiently….Sincerely, Crystal Lee
Dear Cup, Forgive me for calling you Cup as I don't know you personally but I feel as if I do as i have spent the last two days clinching the pages of your book.i just finished and was in tears. I finished reading it 30 minutes ago and I'm still crying. Just so overwhelmed with emotion and love for you. Especially that little 11 year old girl, I am especially showering her with so much love. I grew up in the streets of East L.A. Boyle Heights to be exact and although I'm 45 now and live a very different life girl, you brought back all kinds of memories. My name wasn't Lori Norman then, it's been a while since I thought of that time in my young life. Thank you, thank you for your courage, you are truly such an amazing force and I feel so humbled by your story. Your memoir has profoundly touched me and my heart feels expanded as a result of reading it. Many continued blessings to you and your soul family. Just thank you.
