wedding dress

‘My son wanted to wear a dress to my wedding, so I let him. It shouldn’t be controversial.’: Mom lets son wear dresses, claims we must ‘let our children be who they’re meant to be’

“I wore an ivory dress, my girls wore peach and white flower girl dresses, and my son… he wore a blue flower ‘boy’ dress. Whenever I brought him his suit, he cried and ran away. He saw his sisters dresses and wanted to know where his was. I knew deep down I was going to have to let him. He’s not making a political statement. He just wants to feel good in what he wears.”

‘There’s something wrong with her!’ My mom looked at my triangular-shaped face.’: Woman with rare form of Dwarfism defies ‘grim’ life expectancy, ‘never gave up’

“My mom was pregnant with twins when doctors quickly realized I was growing a lot slower and smaller. Being a nurse, she knew diagnosis was grim. My dad got a call from my mom saying her water broke and he needed to get back to the hospital as fast as he could. Baby A, which was me, was ready to come out and see the world! Everyone else was not.”

‘I was left at the altar. Instead of ‘I do’ I got 5 gut-wrenching words. ‘I just can’t do it.’ He didn’t look me in the eye. I caught him in a half-run and collapsed to the ground, sobbing.’

“I saw my mother rise up. ‘I AM GOING TO KILL HIM!’ I looked out at a sea of concerned faces, my own red from embarrassment. I just wanted to know who she was. The reason my heart was blown to pieces. When I returned home, all of his things were gone. Then it came. Two days later. A message to my sister.”

‘My fiance, a firefighter, arrived to help a drunk driver at the scene when he was hit by another drunk driver, also a firefighter.’: Woman loses fiance months before wedding, honors him with special wedding photo shoot

“That night, I told my fiance I had to leave early to make dessert for Thanksgiving. I texted him I made it home safely. He never responded. I thought he’d fallen asleep. My home phone rang. I remember hearing my dad say, ‘He didn’t make it!’ and my mom bawling in the background. I was so confused. I thought my sister’s husband had gotten into an accident, but they came into my room instead. The love of my life had died.”
