The Follow-Up Interviews
12 Years Later

LOVED FEELING

I want to work on helping them to love and accept themselves as what they are. To love is important; I want to
love by showing acceptance and empathy to these people who feel that they are just not adequate. I want them
feel that they are being loved. Feeling being loved by others is important in each and everyone’s developmental
process. Children, yes, they need to have that being loved feeling when they are very young, and this is signifi-
cant to their healthy development as a person.

During 2008, I completed follow-up interviews with seven of the eight individuals in this book. I had not had contact with some of them since the initial study. Others I had developed and maintained a professional relationship with during the last 12 years.

Despite numerous efforts to contact Mai Li, she did not respond to any of my efforts. Thus, I gathered current data on Mai Li from her public records and interviewed Yuchen as an added Asian female voice. To create the follow-up instrument, I used information from the original Standard Open-Ended Interview Guide (SOIG) to construct the follow-up questionnaire. Using the original questions as a template, participants were asked to reflect back on the last 10 years when answering the questions. Following is an update and a comparison of the demographic data compiled on these counselors.

At the time of the follow-up, more than 12 years later, the females ranged in age from 38 to 54 with a mean age of 48.5, and the men ranged in age from 52 to 67 with a mean age of 57. All remained married to the same individuals; Shawn, who had been engaged during the initial study, married her fiancé during the time between the initial and follow-up studies.
