"Thank you for stopping by. I have a true zest for life and I don't let my disability stand in my way of my dreams and aspirations. When I was born in Miami in 1982 the doctors gave me one week to live, since then I have always had a true love for life. I believe that I was given this body for a reason so I'm grateful every day for it. Don't get me wrong life hasn't been plain sailing all the way, like everyone, I've had my 'ups' and 'downs' however I am still alive and gifted everyday with the art of feeling gratitude and love." Big Love to you - Asta
