"I am a stranger to you now, let me walk with you for a while. Because I have been where you are, and where you are about to go.  I have no answers.  I offer my hand, my heart, my listening ear, my time, and my experience instead…. So that one day, you can turn to another and say: I am a stranger to you now."

By Alice, New Hampshire Parent, Parents Helping Parents
