Episode 7 - Happy Valentine's Day
One this episode of The Empathy Bug I got the pleasure of interviewing two couples and talking to them about their love story. Our first couple is my aunt Kate and her girlfriend Tammy. Though they were from different worlds they managed to connect online and find a love strong enough to move across the country for. Our second couple is my baby sister Geneva and her fiance Dewayne. They met on a whim, at an anime convention that Dewayne hadn't originally planned to attend. Over a year later they now have a child and are planning to have their wedding sometime the end of this year. I love these stories so much, and even though I was there to see them as they unfolded I still learned a lot that I had never known before. Please join us as we celebrate love and the future.
