“I am so grateful for the enormous response of love and support I have received throughout this journey of writing this book. It has changed me forever. More importantly, I am so humbled that I get to share my story in the hopes that other people will be inspired to do the same and that we may all feel free to embrace our stories of struggle without shame or blame.” – Kelly Thiel
