Donna Fountain carried her list, titled "My Dreams," with her everywhere.  Her goals were to find a great job, buy a house by age 45, start a sanctuary for gay and lesbian teens, marry the woman of her dreams and watch her son, Elijah, graduate from college. Sadly, Donna died in a hit-and-run accident on Christmas morning with her son waiting at home to open presents.

A heartbreaking story about a woman who had very practical dreams for her life, a vision for her future, and values that she carried with her every day.
