Thank you so much for inviting me here today!

How can she learn who she wants to be and what is nothing more than a phase?

     When life gets us down sometimes a break is called for.  For a soon to be eighteen-year-old, most wouldn’t think it was call for.  Phoebe Reede however it most certainly was.  You see for this young Australian girl she’s lived the life of two young women already.     When she was born, her parents weren’t together.  Being so young her father, 17, couldn’t handle the pressures of being so in love with her mom that he bailed.  Not ever knowing her mom was pregnant let alone with twin…
