“Dana was different than all the other girls. She had that classic All-American, girl next door quality. I was in awe. We became serious ‘girlfriend-boyfriend’ immediately. Monday night, we stood out in front of her house to say goodnight. We hugged, kissed and talked for 30 minutes. I smiled, kissed her again and said, ‘I love you.’ That’s the last time I saw Dana.”
“Joey began calling Ellie his girlfriend. He tells us he is going to marry her. When they see each other outside of school, they immediately hold hands, hug and look into each other’s eyes. It is as if they know something we do not.”
With having a moderate case of progeria and knowing I aged faster, I was terrified I would never find someone to love me for who I was.
