Jeannette began thinking of her childhood after spotting her mother, Rose Mary, rummaging through trash in New York City.

She arranged to have lunch with her mom, who advised her to stop feeling guilty, accept her parents as they were, and stop hiding the truth about them.

I was very interested in the life the children lived and how it shaped them. It made me realize how much we have and Don't realize it. I admire Jeanette.
