I was in no way prepared to attend Saving Grace. You can't be. But I'll never miss another one. A beautiful, emotional, and most importantly, hopeful evening. A weekend where many of us "old friends" got to meet, face to face, for the first time. Surreal. Such limited time that most of us didn't take time to sleep, as we were busy talking, exchanging thoughts and ideas, committing to the future of the Foundation, our mission, and these web boards.
It was an amazing venue, amazing weather, with extraordinary people. Those who planned and made it happen, those who attended, donated time, effort, money to the cause, and those who've devoted a lifetime to research and caring for "us". I left the event truly thankful to be a survivor.
Saving Grace was trult a Night of Hope.
