“We did not really want to make it a public event that we did for likes or whatever the case may be. We did it from the bottom of our hearts because it is something we do on a regular basis,” said Crystal Paltoo.
This is not a story that Paltoo and her new husband Michael Chong-Kiaw wanted to tell, but it is a story that has taken on a life of its own.
