The good news is that you are not alone. We at Ring14USA are joined by a common denominator, and we are here to help you navigate through this crazy, joyful, scary, wonderful journey.

Do you know how beautiful you are? You are! You are! I see your tenderness, your unqualified love, your patience and dedication. I see your wounded pride, your doubt, anxiety, and rage. I see you adjusted to life as it is and tortured by impossible choices. I see you enlarged and compromised. I see all of you, and always, I see how beautiful you are.
