How does family secret and tragedy change who we are?
If you were 18 years old and just found out, purely by accident, that you had an older sibling that you’d never met, how would you react?
Well today’s guest, Tammy Siddons, lived that experience, which kicked off many years of exploring her place in her family, and how to build a relationship with the sister she never knew she had.
But Tammy’s story doesn’t end there… in her adult years, she made an incredible sacrifice to save the life of a child. But the ramifications of that decision had long-last impacts, and the end result of that choice was a tragedy no-one expected.
Through Tammy’s story you’ll hear about the heartache she’s endured, but it’s a testament to the strength of her spirit, and how her sense of self has evolved over time.
