“Until I felt my dress get caught on my shoe, which prevented me from walking. That’s when everything became clear. I heard my son ask me, “Are you ready?’ and I said ‘Of course I am, I’ve been waiting a long time for this magical day.’ It was filled with so much joy, excitement, and happiness,” she recalled.
