She is one of those people who radiates independence. Life has dealt her some hard blows, and she’s not afraid to admit that sometimes just waking up in the morning is an overwhelming difficulty. But she doesn’t let the world overwhelm her. Instead, she has made it her own.
Her story is truly incredible. I met my pal Wyn for coffee one day, and as usual he entertained me with some really hilarious and interesting anecdotes because, as we all know, his life is unendingly interesting. And then he stopped smiling suddenly and said, “Kaylee. There is this amazing woman I know whose story you won’t believe.” He continued to tell me that, at age 20, the love of Brooklyn’s life, Trevor, was killed in a horrible car crash. One month after the accident, Brooklyn discovered that she was pregnant. In the matter of only a couple weeks, her life was completely changed. Twice.
I knew I had to capture Brooklyn’s story. Not only for her, but for her daughter as well. Trevyn (an adorable mixture of “Trevor” and “Brooklyn”) will never know her father except for the pictures and words her family passes on to her. I want her to know how much her mother loved her father, and how much Trevor would have loved her if he could be here today. I want her to know that she is truly a miracle.
So Wyn took photos, and I took video. I promise that Brooklyn’s story will move you. Watch it below:
