Honoree: Delena Meyer, Vancouver
Nominator: Gabriella Walston
I am nominating Delena because she has shown extraordinary parenting skills to a child who has gone through trauma and has dealt with it in a way that people may not know how. She held room for freak outs, didn't let episodes scare her or back down when things got rough. My aunt has shown extraordinary parenting skill and love, care. She has done an amazing job and without her, I wouldn't be as okay and level-minded as I am now.
