More About Me than You Probably Want to Know

It’s been an interesting season and I thank you, really thank you, for watching and for your support. In the spirit of unanswered questions, here we go.

My 11-year-old son is an accomplished pianist (I wish his recital was included in the show). He's studying three languages and is also fluent in Spanish. He's an honor roll student in the 6th grade and was awarded the citizenship of the year award five consecutive years while in elementary school. And did I mention he has a heart of gold, always offering up his college fund for anyone in need, or he is the first to donate money if a random person holds a sign up or a cup out? He loves "random acts of kindness" as he calls it.

My husband and I have been together, faithful, and happy for twenty years. And no, I didn't meet him during a trial. I did watch him in a trial though and nine months later I met him personally. He has always been an advocate for the downtrodden, the underdog, second chances and good people that made bad choices. Even though we have a very good life and lifestyle, there are countless stories of people no one ever hears about that he has helped pro bono and many people that owe their freedom to his hard work and belief in them. And many more souls that are still unfairly incarcerated that he works tirelessly for day and night, because he believes they deserve the best defense they can get.
