My favorite kind of story is that of a struggle which ends in triumph. Or, as one speaker put it Tuesday, the "journey from the dark side of the street to the bright side of the road." I heard three of these stories at the SAFEchild luncheon, each one just as captivating as the next. I won't venture to discredit these incredible narratives filled with despair and hope by telling them here, but I will tell you something I learned: SAFEchild is the light at the end of the tunnel for thousands of families around the Triangle. Their work is simply awesome and I am proud that I was able to donate to such a fantastic organization.
I owe a huge thank you, again, to Spencer and the folks at SAFEchild for inviting me to be a part of this incredible event!

Here are some more photos I snapped at the event.
