You are the light of my life. We waited so long for you and the day you were born was the most incredible day of my life. The second I held you, everything changed. I immediately sensed your calm and sweet spirit. You are, and will always be, our little miracle boy.
As most parents do, I want the very best for you. I want you to be happy and to lead a meaningful life. I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet. I believe all children have this right and that is why I am working with Moms Clean Air Force to address issues of climate change.
When you were born, I was working on issues of poverty and equality at a local non-profit. While those issues remain close to my heart, there was a noticeable and life-changing shift in my perspective when I became your Mom. The more I learned about the devastating impacts of climate change, the more upset I became. But even with all of the catastrophic predictions, I remain hopeful because we still have the power and ability to lessen the impacts of climate change. As I write this letter, there is so much more work to be done. I will continue to work for you and for all the other little miracles entering the world every second.
All my love,
