I went from laughing to tears in seconds. The real emotion of this episode blew me away. Sharing such personal information with the world and not shying away from the hard questions makes this show worth tuning in each week. My teeange kids listen to this so they can see that we were all unique in our life journeys and the positive impact these stories have can change the world. Keep up the amazing work.
