#5 Everything Was Worth The Fight
Seeing her son finally able to interact and rely on someone has eased Shanna's worries a lot. Now she believes her son will be ok and one day if he has to face the world on his own, he will eventually be fine.

Somehow because of this — because of Tornado — I know everything will be okay. As a mother, I have seen countless challenging and painful moments my son has encountered and cried countless more. Yesterday, however, I cried for a different reason. It is a feeling that is indescribable."
