“As Lauren’s body curved she was no less perfect to me. She was so beautiful, so sweet, so wonderful . . . Through her I have learned to see the perfection in so many people and things that I missed before. We all feel less than perfect for whatever reason---I now know it’s so easy to change that perception because it’s in our own mind.” Roberta Williamson, 1999
