The last two years took everything we had just to get through it. Some of the pain and damage will never leave. Wollongong turned from a place we loved to a place with memories we want to forget. For Rae, this was the place she had to decide if she wanted to stay with me or take a one-way flight home to her family. Part of me will always feel guilty that she chose to stay and put herself and her family through that pain of uncertainty.
