Thanks for listening and sharing!

Maybe send this over to a friend that you know that has suffered through the abandonment of a parent. It's been a scar that I have carried my entire life and is probably the number one motivator in all that I do and have done. It would mean a lot to me to reach out to someone else in the same situation.
