    Jessica- This is the strangest thing. I was looking for an article in the Marin County paper website about a friend and saw your name. I never in a million years thought it could be the same person, and of course it was. What a truly inspiring story. Hope all is well and you have true happiness with your children. I am going to Amazon right now to pick up a copy of Mamalita.
    I’ll try and l;ook you up next time I am out in California.

    Great to hear from you, Mike. I now believe this is the way the world works–in ways that are mysterious. Yes, when you’re next in California, please look me up. I’d love for my family to meet you.

    Thanks for buying my book. Hope you enjoy our story–and please tell everyone you know!
    Warm wishes~
