Thank you for sharing this. It's amazing how much her kids have grown in the past few years. I'm glad that they have had a chance to appreciate how special their mom is.

I have updated Julie's blog list to include the recent CBS link:

Thank you for updating. I was very impressed with her life story, the challenges she faced even as a young child. It's made her a strong woman, I'm glad her daughters have been given the time to get to know their mom too.
