Geez. Powerful. You have no idea what another person's gone through until you walk in their proverbial shoes. I was shocked, intrigued, and moved by Luca and Betsie's story. My goodness. Luca, I'm so glad you hung in there and found the things (and person) in life to live for! Betsie, God bless you. You certainly deserved the Mother of the Year award you received at his prom.
