Dear Jackson,

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,
Mommy
