To Rayna and Lorilei for helping me to save myself during some of my darkest days, encouraging me to be who I am all the time, and always being there for me no matter what. Thank you for becoming my true family. I love you both.
And to the memory of Elaine my very special aunt, friend, and soul mother who supported who I am, my dreams and was always my confidant. You are in my heart forever. I love you.
