For those who know Halle, she is a firecracker, whose spirit and energy could make anyone’s day. Thank you to her incredible mom, Caroline, for sharing their story, and for reminding us that what’s really surprising about being different sometimes are the similarities…the many ways in which we aren’t different at all.
