This is what I love about the power of writing your story, people willing to reach out and share their own. I realize I’m markedly protective of my children and I am fully aware of why. I think I’ve healed, dealt with my demons, yet I show signs they are still very much so alive within me.

Caryln is blessed to have someone accepting in her life. We all need somebody. Best wishes to you both.
