Melissa is graduating from Catawba College in May, and I took a few senior portraits for her as a gift because she has been the most amazing nanny for my daughter the last couple of years! Looking at these photos makes me feel both proud and sad because I am going to miss Melissa SO MUCH, but I’m so excited for her as she moves into the next chapter of her life and goes to grad school at NC State. Melissa is a beautiful person inside and out, and definitely one of the hardest working people I have ever met. She’s amazing with Heidi, and I know Heidi is going to miss Melissa for sure! There’s no doubt in my mind that Melissa is going to be successful, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for her! I’m so thankful that Melissa came into my life because she has made it possible for me to be a happy and sane working mother and keep everything balanced! It’s really hard to entrust someone else with the most precious thing in the whole world (my daughter), but I know Heidi is happy and safe when she’s with Melissa, and that peace of mind is invaluable. Melissa, thank you for all you have done for my family. We are going to miss you very very much!
