A beautiful Storycorps episode that also gave me crying face

by ParentCo. March 20, 2015

Do yourself a favor and listen to this Storycorps episode, featuring a nine year old boy asking his father some searching questions. The conversation is moving, but what I really appreciate about this conversation is the way the two talk with each other. Aidan (son): Are you proud of me? Albert (father): Of course. You my man! Your spirit, your personality. I, I just love everything about you. Period. Listen to the whole thing: StoryCorps | Albert Sykes and Aidan Sykes
