A Waikanae lady I've never met has just phoned to tell us how our piece this week had moved her to thank us and wish us well. It was especially timely as we hadn't seen it ourselves after buying copies of the Sunday Star Times!
We were sensitively interviewed by Juliet McGhie of the Rodney Times and Videographer Anna who must have shot 150 photos. Their story has been picked up by Stuff and can be seen at the link below.
We don't want to make a huge fuss but we are willing to speak out on this issue which is becoming very personal and relevant for us. But it's a little ironic that July has been so much better for me than June.
And if I get invited to have a chat with the Bishop, I'd be happy to fit it into the September trip to see all the grand- and great-grand kids.
