My hero is my oldest and best friend, Kat. I met her when I was 17, I am now 40. I never had a real family having alcoholic parents and no siblings. Kat took me into hers. I care for her as the sister I always wanted and I know without her, I would not be here. I have been unemployed since Sept. and only make $115/wk in unemployment. Kat has been paying my house payment, otherwise we would have lost our home. She has also been buying diapers for my baby twins. She works to help us have a home, food and bills paid. I am in OR and she is in CA, making seeing each other impossible. She is and always has been my angel and sister sent from the universe to save me from my darkest hours so I could have a family and experience real happiness. I can't do much for her, but she will always have my love, loyalty, and my family as hers. Thanks Kat. I love you more than you know.
