When I went to California to fulfill my mom’s last wishes, I got more than I bargained for. Not only did I meet family I never knew I had, I also met Dax. Our long distance relationship hasn’t been easy, but when tragedy strikes, my priorities become clearly defined. My mom may be gone, but as I rush to the one I love, her dreams for my future replay on a loop through my mind. She wanted me to open my heart to love and have a family of my own. Now, I don’t know if I’ll ever get that chance.
