- Wedding: June 2013
I was in and out of foster care as a youth. When I was 17 I went to live with these people who ended up being the best thing ever and my life completely turned around. I graduated HS with a 4.0 and went off to college.
It’s been about 10 years since I first met them, bags in hand. And sadly my guardian angels have fallen on hard times. The papa (seriously I never know how to explain who these people are) has had some lung problems and earlier this year it was determined he needed to get a lung transplant.
I receieved the message today that he was transplanted and we’re hoping for a full recovery…we’re hoping he will walk me down the aisle.
It’s a lot to take in and coupled with the tremendous amount of loss I’ve had in my life sometimes I get overwhelmed and feel like the worst is already happening. But we’re lucky he moved up the list quickly (based on highest need).
Here’s hoping to a new lease of life for my guardian angel!
