Ali and her fiance

Ali Ingersoll is a delightful and beautiful young woman who is famous for her China Quad Diaries where she documented her fascinating trek to China for spinal surgery that would not be attempted in the United States. She certainly doesn’t mind putting herself out there. When she was first injured eight years ago, she completely gave up on the concept of love because she could not fathom the concept of why another human being would want to go through life with her situation.

Some folks jump back into the dating and love game right after their spinal cord injury but Ali was not one of them. It took her five years of being alone and in this article on Push Living, she shares the vivid details of her struggles and triumphs of dating.
