“This wasn’t a choice between you and Jacob.
It was a choice between who I should be and who I am. I’ve always felt out of step like, literally stumbling through my life. I’ve never felt normal, because I’m not normal. I don’t want to be. I’ve had to face death, and loss, and pain in your world but I’ve also never felt stronger-like, more real; more myself because it’s my world, too. It’s where I belong.”
