    Ditto. The story was a roller coaster ride of emotions as I remember this happening. It ended with a smile though, just like a roller coaster ;-) Hopefully people will be inspired by her.

    Awesome story. I don't think anyone will see her coming off as a "Diva." If they do who cares. I see a strong person who is making the best out of her life and enjoying every minute of it. :-D Very cool.

    Bless your heart, Tiphany Adams. I cannot imagine what you've been through, or what you parents have been through either. Highway 12 scares me to this day and I always worry when my children drive in that direction. I always try to talk them out of using that route. Your story brings tears to my eyes and breaks my heart, but in the next moment my heart fills with hope and pride for you, as I see how you are getting along today. I know all of Lodi wishes you well. And keep doing what you're doing now. You are amazing! God bless you.
