PMTM & IMTA LA16 Review

Wow, I’m just in awe. Everything is happening so fast. I’m so emotional, I actually don’t know how to react to such exposure that Kaity is receiving. I am wanting to jump up in excitement one minute and cry happy tears the next. So many wonderful people in this industry, and they are actually REAL people for the most part. I believe that my little girl’s dreams are going to come true.

I honestly believe that the world is ready to see my Kaity’s loveable face and personality shine. She has the fight and fire it takes to survive beyond her dreams. And to all the people that are skeptical of this industry, TRUST IMTA. THEY ARE THE REAL DEAL! Take it from one over protective parent to another. Pro model talent management in Akron, OH has helped her beyond words to prepare. Thank you all for your love and support through the years with all my picture posts and etc. It’s been one adventure after another and a lot of family friends have been there thru it all for many years. We love each and every one of you.
