Three days a year may not seem like much, but to my family and me, it is indeed priceless.

In three days, we experience more emotion than most families do the entire year.

The hurt and anguish that we hold inside can be relinquished and set free from our hearts, through laughter and tears.

Words cannot express the emotions that overcome me in just three days. I can only imagine what my son, a stutterer, is feeling.

Three days a year, we have been blessed with open hearts and emotions from “FRIENDS”, and families, like ourselves. Stuttering doesn’t mean you are different, to me, it means you are very, very special.
