Thank you so much for watching our video. I’d like to tell you how I feel about the video, and why I wanted to share it. Over a year ago I met Dani at the glee project call backs. We connected in a way I have never connected with anyone in my life. It was never about gender or my wheelchair or the number of YouTube hits. It was always about the feeling that I felt when I was around her. We laughed so hard that weekend we cried. The joy and trust was immediate. Dani and I shared our goals and I realized how aligned we were. I recognized our connection was bigger than just the two of us and we could say something together.
I’ll be very honest, when Dani had the idea to make the video I was nervous. I worried that this was another way for someone to put me in a box. Then I realized I felt even stronger knowing this is another way to help people see beyond the box! We are so much more than the categories we place ourselves in. I have never just wanted to be labeled “the girl in the wheelchair” so I was scared that this would be another opportunity for someone to label me. I know that I am more than that. I’ve never let labels define who I am.
I never expected to meet Dani and fall in love, and I especially never expected that I would want to share it with the world. Here I am. I couldn’t be more proud to share my love with all of you. No matter who you are. No matter what you think is or isn’t possible I am telling you that life’s surprises are the best gifts! I never thought I could have it all. It didn’t seem possible. I can say now, I feel like I got my fairy tale.
One last thing, I want to thank Dani. This has been ONE of the greatest adventures of my life. You’ve helped me see so many new beautiful parts of life. Thank you for loving every part of who I am. Love really feels limitless with you!
