She really helped me through all of my problems. She knew everything about me and basically my life story. It’s really hard for me to talk to people sometimes because it makes me uncomfortable, but with her it was easy. She’s my guardian angel and a second mom to me. I love her a lot. She helped me crawl out of a dark place and for that, she is forever my hero.
