My guest today is Harma Hartouni. Harma just happens to be an absolutely amazing human being with one of the most inspiring stories, I've ever heard. He just released his new book called Getting Back Up: A Story of Resilience, Self-Acceptance and Success. He's here to talk about his amazing life from growing up in Iran during the war, learning to walk again after surviving a devastating car accident, finally moving back to the States, learning to accept himself, coming out, meeting his partner, creating a real estate business that has generated billions of dollars. building their beautiful family through surrogacy, and the launch of his new book.
Harma and I talk about the different paths people take to fatherhood and how he's using his experience to help people all across the globe. Lastly, he offers advice on how to be loving, accepting and supportive parents if you suspect your child is gay or have a child who has already come out. This is so important folks.
