Sisters reunited after forty-three years

In this week’s episode, I am delighted to welcome the lovely Barbara Lane to the podcast who joins me from the United States.

With over 25 years of private practice as a ministerial counselor, Barbara Lane has dedicated herself to serving individuals and families. Her educational background in human development, social sciences, and family psychology, with a specialization in child abuse, fuels her passion for sharing expertise on topics close to her heart.

Through her journey, Barbara Lane boldly confronts the stigma surrounding child abuse survivors, offering hope and understanding to those who have faced similar challenges. Her latest work, Broken Water: An Extraordinary True Story, resonates with readers by delving into themes of resilience, foster care, attachment, child maltreatment, trauma healing, and the power of faith. By sharing her story, Barbara empowers others to overcome adversity and find solace in the transformative power of self-discovery and faith.

It has been my pleasure to have Barbara join me, and I know, my listeners, that you will enjoy the episode.

Enjoy the episode, and a special thank you to my listeners for joining me on this journey.
