About Carter Family

Rape and abuse survivor, mother of special needs/autistic 20 plus yr old, mother of a combat medic. Both are Global Messengers for Special Olympics NC. Have gone through many traumatic events, countless medical issues and still have a ;) on my face and love in my heart. Volunteering is a part of my dna. Irish but chose to date out of my race and have had to deal with the narrow-minded ignorance of racism. Everyone has things we go through, telling my story may help someone get through theirs.
