Life is what you make it! When life altering obstacles arise and prevent us from traveling the road that we have mapped out for ourselves, you create another road and keep it moving! I choose laughter, joy, humor, and the ability to give everyone the benefit of another chance, be it a second, third, or fourth.
In March of 2006 I was given the chance to work for the Heritage Foundation. I was extremely excited about the opportunity to witness treatment working. I believe treatment has to start with giving another chance to that person that nobody else would. It is refreshing to see the transformation from what a person used to be, to what they can be.
