Recover, Adapt, Overcome

conference and ball

I have a heck of a lot of respect and love for the Purple Wings Charity. I genuinely don’t believe I would be in the position I am now if it wasn’t for a message about the ball I saw in a group.

I had messaged Lauren a few times and felt quite an instant connection to her, she has such a big heart and is beautiful inside and out. She managed to make it so 00Steve could come with me as well after an unfortunate turn of events occurred. I don’t think she will ever truly understand what that meant to us both.
