So I’m really happy that they’re giving it to us.
“It’s a really cool piece and it makes me feel very happy.”
I’m really excited to go back to Australia and make my own.

They said, ‘we want you to give it to the bride and groom and then take it back home and make sure it’s all perfect,'” Mrs Janson said.”
But we were so excited to hear it was going to be a woman, so we were really excited.

“We’ve all had to deal with some of the worst things we can think of and it can be difficult, but we’ve never thought about doing anything that would make it better,” she said.
