I love this story, James. Of all the pieces of yours I’ve read, this and the follow-up story with Stevie are my favorites. My heart aches and I cry every time I read them. Would you share what’s happened to Don and Stevie? Are they still in your life?

People often tell me they’re sorry that I don’t have any close blood relatives left. I tell them that I’ve gotten to choose my family and that’s the best kind of family to have.

Thank you for sharing so much of yourself and your life with us.
