Irene, thank you so so much. That really warms the cockles of Aunty’s kweenie little heart.

You know, this boy reached out to me on a Facebook group I help moderate. Being able to put a face and a name to his question made it very personal for me.

I spent several hours yesterday researching and writing, trying to hit the nail on the head, to make it connect personally with him, while also being helpful for general readers.

I’m so glad you think it worked!
