I Owe You a Huge Apology I listened to you faithfully for all the years I was a stay-at home mom raising my daughter. However, I always felt that you were unsympathetic and insensitive to the struggles of adults who were victims of child abuse. I guess I was so sensitive... More >>

Child Abuse: It's Awful, Painful, Shameful and More If you haven't been through it, there is no way to describe it. It's awful, it's painful, it's shameful - I can't think of enough "ful" words...

I was able to give this to him shortly before his passing when he was still well enough to take it all in. More >>
