“My parents separated when I was 12 years old. Having left one or the other of my parents to celebrate the other, I lived as you live today.

Life has been good to me and allowed me to reconcile with Christmas by giving me the joy of giving birth to a son on Christmas Day, a surprise pregnancy! said another.
