This girl suffered 65% burns on her body. Then her boyfriend did this…
When two people fall in love, they want their love to last forever and ever. Love is not just the physical and emotional attachment to one another, but also dedicating everything to one another and being there for your loved ones, when they need it the most. Love is the name of sacrifice and it only grows better as you keep giving to your partner.
Here is one such story of eternal love and sacrifice showed when a normal being would have found it better to wash his hands off the whole affair and walk away and no one would have blamed that person. But this guy was there when his partner needed him the most and showed that love goes beyond physical attraction.
1 Starting of the most beautiful relationship!
Turia who was born in Tahiti, French Polynesia, was brought up in Ulladulla, NSW. She met her boyfriend Michael Hoskin during the high school and they have been together since then. Turia and Michael’s love story is a typical high school romance where the two people meet, exchange looks, become friends and then fall in love ultimately. Michael became a police officer in Australia and Turia pursued a career in mining engineering and modeling. They officially became a couple in 2009 and Turia had landed her dream job, when the unfortunate tragedy struck Turia in 2011.

Michael didn’t leave Turia’s side even for once. He even left his job as a police offer to care for her during the four years she was in intensive care unit. He helped her entirely as she couldn’t dress herself or look after herself due to the injuries and recovery process.
During an interview Michael was asked “Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?” Michael’s answer brought tears to everyone who was listening to him speak. He said, “I married her soul, her character, and she’s the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams.”

Turia and Michael recently announced their engagement. Turia had to relearn all the skills she loved in life like marathon running, rock climbing and surfing. She also champions the cause of Interplast, a charity foundation that provides funds for reconstructive surgeries to children in third world developing nations.
When asked about her partner Michael, Turia said “Going to sleep next to my partner I never thought anything of before. Now I think lucky am I to get to sleep next to this beautiful man. He’s a good guy and I’m very lucky to have him.” She continued, “Every day I wake up beside Michael is a great day.”
