Most memorable moment during this book process: Through the countless days/nights/weeks and months of writing, reading and editing our 1st memoir, I have cried on each occasion, that I'm taken down memory lane. With each tear I cried, I felt the layer of regret and pain quickly peel away to reveal the sweet essence of strength and tenacity and most importantly, LOVE ♥
