Turning Point
12/14/2010
IconHi Dr Laura, I live in Southern California and have been listening to your program for about 3 years now. I can say that your program truly helped me understand my priority in life. I've been married for about 10 years and about 22 months ago was blessed with a beautiful daughter. Sadly, when my daughter was 3 months old, we decided to put her in a day care. Since the day care was closer to my work, I'm the one who has to drop her off at 8am and pick her up at 5pm. On many occasions, my daughter was sleeping in her car seat when I dropped her off, but there was one day that change everything. On that day, my daughter was waking up, right after I gave the car seat, with my daughter in it to the day care lady. She smiled at me and looked happy that I was there. That was the turning moment for me. It broke my heart to see her smile at me, but yet I let some stranger raise her... I can happily say my wife now is a stay home mom. After just 2 months of being raised by a stranger, my daughter is now enjoying her childhood time with my wife. Honestly, it wasn't easy. It took a lot of commitment from my wife and me, but we manage to make it work. This Christmas, I'll take my wife to the mall and let her choose a present to show appreciation for her hard work. Our finances are tight, but I don't mind using public transportation to go to work to save some gas money. The smile and laughter of my wife and daughter on the phone are more than enough to make it all worth it. Thank you for what you do. Enrico
