  1. This was a great story, I saw it the other day with the wife and daughter. It really shows how if you dream big, determined, work hard and believe in God, nothing can stop you!

    Thanks for the post!

    1. Loved how the film showed the single Mom’s unconditional love and support for her children. Her determination to support Gabrielle’s dream, at no matter what cost was commendable and, something we all can learn from.
