i got this message from one of francesca’s closest friends – and it’s the best priceless affirmation that a mother could have 🙂 … are you reading this r. mateo??!!!
“you raised a very confident and independent daughter. I’m glad I met her this year because she has done so much and gained so much successes at her age that she inspires me. and she always attributes her hard work to you! like daughter, like mother. thank you for raising such a wonderful daughter! I’ll talk to you soon!”
