When I first moved to Toronto I knew a handful of people in the city. My friendship with Caitlin was one that really made me feel like I could form a life here. Caitlin is one of those amazing people who wake up everyday with a sunny disposition. Her laugher is contagious and her heart is generous.

One day, Caitlin told me about a former co-worker she reconnected with over Facebook. They started spending time together and before they knew it a relationship developed. When she talked about them she could hardly keep up with her own excitement. The words spilling out of her mouth were passionate and hard. I knew instinctually, Jay was going to be different from anyone before him. Watching the two of them together, making plans, supporting each other through life’s hurdles and laughing through it all, you just know something special is here.
