I was moved by your honesty

I cannot begin to tell you how moved I was while reading your book. You are amazingly brave to have shared the inner most details of your experiences.  I was raised a Catholic, although I do not belong to the Church any longer I still have grappled with my feelings. I have always been intrigued by Mother Teresa and wondered what it would have been like to have worked with her. Mother Teresa was a friend of my Cousin (Bernadette Coomaraswamy)

I believe they met while she visited India. I so wish I had the opportunity to have met her.  I was also very moved by your honesty regarding your sexual awakening.  In doing so you will free others to believe we should not suppress our passions,  they are normal and a beautiful part of life.

I do hope I have the honor of meeting you someday. I wish you well.

Thank you for writing such an incredible book, I felt like I experienced your journey along side you.
