Casandra and Harriet, at her wedding in Kauai, August 2013.
Harriet loves these two for how they never ever made her feel judged. Harriet knew she walked pretty strange for a while.
Harriet took ballet with Cecily, she never judged either.
This is Scarlette, Harriet took ballet with her as well.
“Scarlette and Carissa, her mom, are the first non-family members allowed to see me at Royal Columbian, other than family. Scarlette continuously tells me to hit her hand until, eventually, I do it, everyone’s so excited because I am now moving on command. The little movement I am capable of doing, I’m doing. The last time Carissa saw me was in her kitchen. It’s so ironic that she said I’m going to do something special with my life. She told my mum that she could see that I was still there in my eyes.”
