Shawna, my adopted little sister (she adopted me back) at the Walk to Remember. This year she looked at me, nineteen and beaming, and said I'm on my way. I'm going to be a pediatrician.

In that moment I'd have sworn she could be anything. Anything at all.

In the Glow in the Woods archives, read about the day I met Shawna and her Ceili at the very first walk. The following year, she held me up. This year, she was stunning. In October of 2011, I'm buying her a beer and we're going to talk medical school.
