    Miracles do happen!

    Dora's story is touching and powerful. It was one that left me feeling like I wanted to be a better person. Reading the story about her husbands recovery from his horrific fire truck accident was nothing short of a miracle and it was also enlightening to read what her and her husband went through even after he was home from the hospital. I love people's stories and was deeply encouraged by this one.
