Sharing this conversation with you is giving you a peek into the inner workings of my mama’s heart. Leslie Potter is my parenting coach and her kind counsel has shaped our family for the better. She is generous, kind, loving and clear-sighted. We talk about her long road to becoming a single mama via adoption post-40, her unconventional (and brilliant) choices as a mama and the amazing results for her relationships. We go deep on this one, so buckle up and enjoy.
