Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Mary Curran Hacket. When Curran Hacket was a child, her father’s never-give-up lectures were heard often by his eight children. She never did anything to challenge his fortitude until she became pregnant in her early twenties out of wedlock. Curran Hacket says her father didn’t lecture her – but he didn’t give up on her. And that inspired her not to give up on her own child. [Broadcast Date: June 15, 2012]
