Despite the entropic nature of Jeanette’s parents , you have always said that something extraordinary has had to start with passion, or as you would say, the further up you go, the longer it’s going to take you to fall down. With what seems to be nothing as a safety net for Jeanette in an exsanguinous family, I wonder how you were able to start a new life with no family outside of my brother and I.
