Way to go Leticia!
18 August 2019 | by jamieleemcmannSee all my reviews

I heard you asking another female to view this at work and give you a rating, I don't see how anyone could hear heartbreaking stories like theirs and not give you a 10, it would be wrong. It was sad, but very real, how a person could not rate this a 10 would be crazy. Great job Tish. Much respect to the ladies for sharing their sons lives.
