Lil’ Dude with his momma!
Now she’ll be on NBC‘s Chicago P.D. Wednesday, March 23 at 9pm CMT (10pm EST) and was hand selected by the director. Okay, okay, so it’s a non-speaking FEATURED roll, but I’m proud of her for getting back into the swing of things. She has a dream, just like I do with my writing. And we all know, if you don’t start, you can’t finish! Whenever possible, I support her in every way (so click her IMDB page again). She’s grown into such a beautiful young woman and I believe great things are coming her way.
