All of my stories are true to the best of my memory. However, I have changed the names of my kids and, at times, the names of others in my writing. Some of these tales are very personal and very emotional. I am only sharing things that are either already public knowledge within our community and/or I have received express permission from each person (specifically my children) about each story I tell. I am honored that I am entrusted with these children and will never do anything to break their trust or their spirit.
When I tell family stories, the categories are simply Our Daily Life and/or Our Memories. I also have a sub-category for each child. Their name is listed as a category if I am specifically sharing a story about their own journey.
