Suzanne Biemiller and This I Believe

Suzanne Biemiller and her motherEach week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this week by Suzanne Biemiller. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two daughters.  In her spare time, Biemiller works as Director of Policy, Planning and Coordination for Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter.

Now decades later, she continues the habit because Biemiller believes those regular calls help strengthen the bonds between mother and daughter.
