Christian

Next up is Christian. Her mother takes the floor across from her. "Let this be like it's rain and it's not going to get stuck in you," Yvonne says.

"I'm angry that you're my best friend—my only best friend," Christian says.

Christian's mother is taken aback and says, "Oh," but Yvonne encourages her to stand strong. "Make whatever sounds you need to make," Yvonne says.

Even in her own anger, Christian works to help heal her mother. "I'm angry because you think [my weight] is your fault. This is not your fault," she says. "I'm angry because it kills your heart that I don't have a father. But it's not your fault."
