Introducing: Stories

A future post's excerpt:

" My whole life I had always been sheltered and protected out of love by my amazing parents. I had never been on a train, a plane or a taxi by myself in my life. Heck, I used to be scared to walk into a store alone! This was something that I had to do myself. I broke out
of my shell and made this journey alone. I was scared to death, but my excitement overcame it – and let me tell you it was so empowering. I was finally going to meet my own blood and flesh!"
