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.

Well… I don’t know what to say right now but will say this…. prepare and pray.

Have you ever been in one of those periods where you really just want to disconnect from the world around you and just immerse yourself in your own little bubble?
