Margarita

I gave birth to a little boy.
I gave birth when I was 17.
I gave birth to a child with autism.
I gave birth to a child who saved me.
I gave birth to my existence of love.

Amy


Had a beautiful, amazing son against all odds.
Saw Pope John Paul II in Colorado surrounded by other faith-filled youth from all over the world.
Wrote stories and poems.
Painted pictures.
Found sunshine among the clouds.

Amy, age 37

Sophia

Learned to love myself, therefore love and truly understand people.
Let go of fear and became more adventurous and joyful.
Experienced the thrill of being around loving people in other countries.
Felt the crashing waves of the open ocean and loved it.
Watched the world from above.

Sophia, age 23
