The inspiration for Devon’s story came from a walk that she took to while in elementary school. She began to feel a sense of belonging as the experience fueled the desire to know more about her family. Little by little, the connections were formed, broken bridges were repaired, and she knew she was a part of something larger than what her eyes could see.

Be prepared to have tissues handy if you’re a sappy sort. It took Devon multiple takes to tell her story without choking up so much.
