                      Hi Tara,

                      I’m not even finished with your book, but had to google for more information about your story.
                      Somehow I know your story is important to me. Although very different, there are some parallels in our stories.
                      I just want to say thank you. I don’t know what will happen with me, but I know the story you bravely told has changed me. I am 53, but I am still able to change because my heart is open.
