I wish her all the luck in the world, though I know that won't be enough. Resilience is an absolute necessity.
Thank you :) Yes, I know that journey well, but in my case, it wasn't with any financial backing from my parents. They supported me with encouragement, but didn't have any money to spare. Possibly one reason why I was determined to support Emma's dream. I've done the same with my older son too, but in a completely different arena.

What are we without dreams? Life is peppered with regrets. For my children, I don't want "if only" to be one of them.
