Back in May, Lindsey took part in Zooey Magazine’s “Dear Mom” feature. I’ve added the photo to our gallery which you can find here. Below is her part of the feature.
Lindsey Morgan, “The 100”
I am beyond lucky to say that my childhood was an extremely happy one and I know I have my mother to thank for that. When I was in the fourth grade, my parents, like so many others, decided to get a divorce. My father remarried and moved across the country with his new family. That Christmas, my brother and I ran down to the tree to find all the presents were missing except for a small envelope had contained a clue detailing a scavenger hunt for our gifts! My mother is extremely creative and needless to say, we had a blast searching and this became our new family tradition each year. And it was not until I was much older that I realized my mother wanted to distract us from our father’s absence during the holidays. She always made sacrifices for our happiness. As an adult, I am only beginning to recognize and truly appreciate her for being a strong, beautiful, and loving woman. I hope to be at least 1/10th of the woman she is when I am a mother.
