My mom told me that some people recognized her and my dad when they go shopping, eat in the restaurant, and see the dentist as my parents. She told me that people often express support for me to them.
Just a few years ago, my parents were doing their best to hide the fact that I was in prison because they couldn't hold their heads up due to the shameful crimes I'd committed.
Today, they've totally embraced reality and spoke proudly of my transformation. There is no shame in that.
