We've known each other for almost 8 years now and we have been through a lot together. Boyfriends and breakups. First loves and heartbreaks. Babies and hospitalization. Marriage. Moving. More babies. Visits. Depression. Separation. Drama. Deployments. Surgeries. Broken bones. She is the only person (besides my Mama) that I trust completely, and only because that trust has been tested time and time again and she has always been true. She is the big sister I never had.
She is seriously one of my heroes. She is such a strong woman! Her son, Tristan, was born at 24 weeks by way of an emergency c-section. When he was born he was the size of a ruler and weighed less than a gallon of milk. Tristan had a 50% chance of living and once he defeated those odds there was still a huge mountain of medical problems for them to climb. She is a single mom with financial help from her mom. But through all of her struggles she still manages to keep her head up and her mind right.
We live 1,457 miles apart but that has never kept us from staying in touch. Since we moved to NC in 2007, she has been here five times and stayed for a least a month (usually much longer) each visit. She has her own room in our house. She has her own food here. When Tristan and Aiden were younger she even had her own play pen. She is a huge part of our life and she is here to stay.
