My mum was crying again.
But this time, they were tears of happiness.
As I twirled in front of the mirror, wearing the most incredible wedding dress, I felt beautiful.
So much had changed. Most importantly, I’d met the love of my life Joshua, in January 2015.
Before then, I’d had a couple of girlfriends.
One was pregnant, and I’d become like a mother to her daughter Kashmire.
But the relationships had broken down. Now, Josh made me feel so special.
He didn’t care
about the scars. Was always saying how beautiful I was.
With my confidence boosted, I stopped covering my face in make-up, uploaded natural snaps to social media.
And now, here we were, about to exchange marriage vows in front of all of our family and friends. Today, nobody was looking
at my scars.
With Joshua on our big day
