I was finally able to come home on September 26, 2012; a few days after my last surgery.

I had never been greeted by so many people at the airport.  There was a group of people just waiting for me, clapping for me as my mom pushed my wheelchair out.  They even made posters with my name on them.  I felt like a celebrity.

I don’t remember everyone that was there but I remember my grandparents, my friends from high school and their parents.

It was a little overwhelming at the time, I wasn’t able to really take it all in at the time, but just having all those people cheering me on as soon as I got home made me sure that I wouldn’t be alone on this journey; and I haven’t.  If so many people believe in me, it meant I could do it, and it was true; I did it!
