In the Fall of 2007 a friend of mine suggested I write a book about my life. So I did. Today, after many years of writing, enhancing, and editing, it arrived at my home in print. My new baby is born. It is the story of my life - how it was for me when my mom became sick from schizophrenia, and how I eventually learned to be healthy and have a healthy relationship with her. Making my story known is pretty vulnerable, but worth it if it does help others. It is my gift of love.
