Myself, Ashley Banion and her husband Vince, have an honest and engaging discussion about our lives and memoirs.
Ashley and Vince describe the choice and challenges of international adoption, the grief of your dearest fur baby becoming unwell, and how anxiety can make a stressful time so much worse.
I offer some insights about being raised in a close-knit community in a fundamentalist church, suddenly moving to Tasmania to become a missionary, the harrowing experience of losing my faith and how difficult it is to decide what to teach your children. I also explain how OCD can keep you stuck in your pain.
Watch our discussion below (please excuse the technical glitches, the conversation is well worth it!)
