We gathered to hear Ms. Stafford's story about being sold as a teenager by a family member.  Despite the hardships, Ms. Stafford moved forward and focused on changin her life and that of her children for the better.  Her story is compelling and full of hope and a testament to what you can do with a little hope and faith.
