For a recap, my baby sister was hit by a drunk driver back in 2010. Ever since that horrendous day I have yet to hear my baby sister speak, nor her husband or her five year old daughter for that matter.
It's been a saga with no ending point.
So when I got the call that my baby sister was back in the ICU, my mind
It was the first time we were to meet in person, I knew he was going to be nervous and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.
The minute Joe set on my couch one of the first things he said to me was "I don't believe in love... I think it's f$#@$ bull@#$#."
I took in a big gulp of air to my belly as I knew this wasn't going to be easy. My first time sitting with my client and he boldly tells me he doesn't believe in the one thing I have learned to base my life on.
To hear Joe say these words hurt me deeply. Here was a
Whenever you think of love do you think it looks like a beautiful romantic movie?
