In the beginning...

From the moment of her birth, the odds were stacked against her.  Conceived in lust, she was born into a world on the verge of stumbling down from grace.  Her parents, young and uncomprehending of the dark side of human nature, welcomed her into their arms that night.  They held her, hopeful for the tomorrows that lay ahead, and vowed to give her a life filled with love and trust.  She was a clean slate on which they could right all the wrongs of their past—a fresh start on their new life.  In their daughters eyes shined the promise of the future.  It was a new day, in a new city, and they were ready to take it on, together.  They had everything they needed now.  Neither was prepared for the hand of fate that would change everything during their daughters first year of life.
