Description
In Mourning...The Loss of a Living child is the heart wrenching true story of a mother's roller coaster ride of a battle for her son's life. Between her denial and being unable to save her son from the streets, drugs, jail and inevitably himself, their relationship becomes tumultuous and rips them apart and nearly destroys the family. Feeling as though she has failed her son, the title of the book reflects the deep sadness and pain the mother carries within her heart. She mourns for her son's life. And as most parents do, she had dreams of her child growing up, going off to college and becoming successful. He had a brilliant mind, great sense of humor and good looks. He could have aspired to be anything he wanted with his life but by the time he was fifteen she knew there might be a different path set for him. And the battle had begun. The book was written because too many young men and women are destroyiing their lives and too many parents are in denial. There is an old saying that holds so much truth, "It takes a village to raise a child." Well it's time the village rises up and embraces our youth.
