Brian
On the 3rd day of November 2007 God handed a little Angel directly to us in the form of a charismatic little chubb-a-lubbs that we named Brian John-Michael Perry.

As parents, we know our children inside and out better than they know themselves… Spread the love

I’ve always lived a life of purpose. At the age of nine, I was in a car accident where I sustained several significant facial and body injuries.
