Episode Description

Dale Quotes Christopher Robin who said to Winnie the Pooh: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Her memoir, "The Hooker's Daughter," presents a child’s journey into womanhood and reveals a family embroiled in prostitution, shoplifting, stolen cars, homelessness, homosexuality, and terminal illness. This candid and shocking memoir delivers a stunning account of shame, survival, and triumph. She not only wishes to discuss her memoir, but, more important, to deliver the inspirational message that it is possible to overcome overwhelming and difficult circumstances. Through her own life experiences, She wishes to share that one can find inner strength and courage. The miracle of the human spirit is that, paradoxically, the more broken you are, the more whole you have the chance to become.
