“Did you know?”
My voice broke as I said the words to my mother on the phone. “Know what?” she said, her Southern drawl also turning tearful.
She hadn’t known what life changing events had occurred that morning
I had flown to North Carolina to surprise Brandt Waggoner, my boyfriend then, for his birthday in December 2007. However, he had turned the surprise around (with the help of many friends and family) and proposed to me. We had been dating for 3 years. I had been living in Lebanon and he was in Wake Forest, N.C. working on his seminary degree.
