Sometimes the Universe gives you exactly what you need when you need it - I was feeling very down this morning because I've been coping with a seemingly impossible situation... this story has made me hopeful again. Thank you very much for sharing.

I am so moved by this article. What an inspiration! It is so true that there are no limits to what can be done when limits set by man are taken out of the way and the human spirit is allowed to soar. Thank you for sharing this story.
