    Fourth caller. I know this is an older program, one taken from the archives. I would love to know what happened to the baby. Did you give into the boyfriend and destroy her baby according to the boyfriend’s wish or did she adopt the child out to a loving family?

    I listen to your program often. I was traveling during one of the Fridays in February and you were counselling a lady who had a problem that she had not been effectively addressing. Two of the interventions you gave her was to: complete a workbook that addresses managing your emotional issues (a book that you have on your website) The other suggestion you gave her was to start a “group”?? and you also suggested a book for her to read on establishing this “group”. I am sorry this is so sketchy but I looked into the archives for February and none of the captions seem to cover this caller’s problem.
    I hope you can help me, the advice that you gave her seemed like it would be helpful for me.
