I am 42, divorced with no kids. When I first listened to you, I didn’t agree with your views in general. I thought you were too harsh, and your views too strict. But I kept listening and keeping an open mind and heart.
I realized that you were not just “Dr. Laura” to me; you were “MAMA Laura,” because I grew up in a very negligent, abusive household. I learned a lot from you and I have a very successful career, doggies, a huge group of friends that are my “chosen” family, and a very loving, kind and good man who won’t have the privilege of shacking up with me without marriage first. Mama Laura, thank you doesn’t seem like enough, but thank you for showing me the way.
