My name is Abby, I am 22 years old, and I grew up in Oshkosh, WI. with seven brothers and sisters and two amazing parents. I saw what unconditional love looked like first hand. We were taught unconditional love by seeing it between my parents, we were taught unconditional love from God in church, and we were taught unconditional love as we, as a family, adopted four amazing children.

Love is around us daily, but sometimes we get caught up in “fictional” love. Love that looks amazing but maybe isn’t so great behind closed doors. That’s what brings us to this blog or story. I was engaged to who I thought was my fairy-tale, but we were fictional. We LOOKED good, but if you really dug deep was it really as good as it looked. Unconditional love is messy, its painful, its frustrating but it is beautiful. This is my journey.
