Izzy - Age 4

If not for your smile and your laugh and your heart, This place we call home would be minus a part. –
Nancy Tillman

Evan - Age 7

Once upon a time I became yours and you became mine, we will stay together through the tears and the laughter because that’s what they call, happily ever after

Kathleen - Age 22

One day, we won’t need to talk about inclusion, diversity, representation, and we’ll just live our lives. Until then…

Evan - Age 7

And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.

Claire - Age 43

The rarest of the rare, I’m an inspirational woman called Claire.
