My name is Brandon Ryan, I am 23 years of age. I was born with Cerebral Palsy. Let me tell you right up front, I have been through Hell and back. I have scars all over my body, scars that tell a story of pain, grief, and imperfection. I have struggled through out my life, and I have searched for the deepest desires of my heart. To be loved, to have a sense of self worth, to be accepted and wake up every morning with a hope that never, never dies. I have questioned my exsistence and why it is that I am given breath every single second I am alive. And the only answer I can give you that makes any sense at all, is love. A man gave his life, for me, because he first loved me. Even when I hated myself. He has gave me a new life, a life that is full of purpose, awe and wonder. To have this love means everything to me, but it started with a choice. One choice, to hand over all the pain, the depression, the thoughts of suicide, the envy and all things that we humans deal with, to have a life full of grace and a life that will not only get better now, but for all enternity. I am on a journey, and I hope you will choose to walk along side me.
