I will premise this op-ed with a brief introduction of myself. My name is Danielle Osterlind (sex addiction therapist ). I am a wife, a mother, a Masterís level educated professional woman with an MBA in Organizational Psychology and a small business owner of a marriage and family therapy practice. Iím a powerful, strong, capable, energetic and empathetic woman. Every day, I make a lot of important decisions that influence my life, my family, and our community as a whole. |
Iím not that different from internationally known late night television host Jimmy Kimmel, except that I am one woman, one Mom, who does what I do in a small office, behind a small desk, by myself, everyday. Jimmy, it seems, is one man, one Dad, who does what he does in front of millions of people every night. Iím sure you can see the similarities.
Today is May 10, 2017. Last week I arose one morning to see social media video of Jimmy Kimmelís broadcast story about his newborn son, Facebook, tweeted, reacted to and shared across the global internet thousands of times (probably millions by the time you are reading this).
I read in quotes, ďIf your baby is going to die, and it doesnít have to, it shouldnít matter how much money you make.Ē Since I had a baby that died almost nine years ago, I was immediately intrigued. I clicked play and spent the next approximately 13 minutes watching and crying along with his very emotional, very raw, very honest, very heartfelt, very passionate offering of his experience, his story, his pain, his love and his hope.
