• I think it's time to finally explain this tattoo, and part of my purpose here.
I grew up in a household of domestic abuse, and always felt like there had to more to 'family' than that. I didn't know how to find them, but I had faith in the universe, and the existence of a person or a collection of people who would love me the way I loved them — who would be my real family. I thought that if I could just "write to them," maybe they would read it and know that I am theirs.
So I wrote here. I wrote my book. I threw myself across the planet in every way I could.
And I found them.
And it has been the hardest and most beautiful experience of my life.
