It's a horrific story that will renew your faith in all the magic that is true love. After graduating high school back in 2007, Taylor Morris found his passion as an EOD (explosive ordinance disposal) tech in the Navy, trained to know the ins and outs of bombs. Morris deployed to Afghanistan in January 2012 and in May of last year was injured after stepping on an IED. He lost both of his legs, right hand, and left arm from the bicep down. Taylor is now a quadruple amputee.
Through it all, though, Taylor had the love of his family and, most importantly, his girlfriend Danielle Kelly. Loving someone in the military can often be hard, but dealing with the repercussions of a frightening accident like Taylor's ... I can hardly imagine. The good news? Danielle isn't going anywhere, and they have the photos of this difficult journey to prove it. Grab the tissues, you're gonna need 'em:
WARNING -- some of these photos are graphic in nature.
