why we adopted my niece Eryn.

  • Published: 22 September 2019
  • Hey Larlees, todays video is different. This is the story of why Tyler and I adopted my niece Eryn. This video was hard to film, and to be candid I filmed it 3 times and every time watching it back it didn't feel right. It was me sitting there telling the story of my sister, Eryn, and Tyler. I felt like these are not all my stories to tell. They should be here telling their own stories, so thats just what I did. I opened my platform and asked them the hard questions. I'm so grateful they were willing to be so open and share some of their most vulnerable moments with thousands of people. People aren’t perfect and never have been. Addiction is a real thing that affects so many people and families. My sister is working on getting better everyday. We are all so proud of her and her journey i'm so happy she is here to share her story. Thank you all so much for watching. We love you guys.

    Lets keep the conversation going. Teen Pregnancy, Addiction, low income SO many people have struggles and they shouldn’t feel alone.
    What were/are some struggles you have faced? How did you overcome them?

          Just wanted to say thank you Laura for making this video and showing people the raw truth about how addiction affects everybody. I sobbed watching this. My father also recently passed from his addiction to alcohol and it’s one of the hardest things to swallow. Thank you for this video. I think I needed this more than I thought.

                    People may not like her, but you have to respect her for this. Like wow. That’s a huge responsibility.

You should find out from your sister, if she at all remembers the time in which she was born at? I am just curious because I wonder if she has the same rising sun as mine? Mine is a Leo. =)) Anyways, just curious really....
