With gratitude

In listening to NPE stories and Lily the NPE host, I am ever so grateful for this NPE Podcast. Lily is so gracefully sincere. As an NPE and finding out two year ago, I can’t thank you enough ! The NPE stories are so heartfelt. It feels better to know we are not alone in these journeys. Kindly~ Karen5176
