I've watched Oprah for all 25 years. I am 40 now and she has been there with me through everything. High school troubles, boyfriends, college, marriage, young children and now teenagers. I feel like I should be one of those people on stage telling her how much she helped me. This year more than ever. There have been many shows since October when my son came out that he is gay. Episodes with Ricky Martin, a female country singer, and episodes of shows in the past 2 decades of people being gay. Adam has sat with me and watched these episodes and felt better. She has helped Adam and I connect without words at a time he wasn't able to talk too much yet. These guests really started... it gets better... for our family. So thanks Oprah! And thanks friends! I guess I'll be coming to Spark at 4pm when I'm missing my girl!
