A Person Can Change Your Life

Dr. Laura, 

I come from a broken home and many traumatic childhood situations. My sperm donor has always been absent and both my mother and sperm donor shacked up throughout my childhood. So, of course, when I was a young woman, I made the mistakes of becoming a shack-up honey as well. I was always in search of that fatherly love and affection. 

When I was 20 years old, I met my now husband.  He introduced me to you and we would drive around and listen you every chance we had. He was the first man to court me and treat me with the love and respect I always craved. We did not shack up or have sex before we were married. We married young, but I knew I had chosen wisely. His parents were a big part in my decision process in him for a husband. People very much underestimate the importance of the in-laws. 

We just celebrated our 7 year anniversary and have two little boys. I am a stay-at-home mom, my husband's girlfriend and he is my boyfriend. We are seriously considering me homeschooling our children. I just need you to know you have been a guiding light in our lives - especially mine.  If it wasn't for you I may not have ever learned how to properly care and feed my man, raise my babies and do the right thing. 

Keep doing what you do, you are my hero! Thank you.
