I wrote this to my beautiful children and my husband to acknowledge their compassion and understanding through my healing process.
When I think of my family, I think of Love. I love the three of you very much! I realize now how hard it must have been on the three of you when I was facing those horrid memories. Working through all that anger is one of the hardest things I ever faced. I also want to thank the three of you for supporting me and loving me enough with your compassion and understanding.
I know you all must have had your own anger. It’s OK. I am not afraid to hear whatever you need to express to me. I am here with an open heart and open mind. My love for the three of you, my love of life and my faith in God and myself got me through it all.
I learned one very important lesson. The power of Love is stronger than any hate or anger. That is why I was determined to keep healing, working, and overcoming. I am thankful that God gave me a strong spirit. The worst is all behind. Life is beautiful! I have become the strong, creative, woman I was always meant to be!
Yes, in our life there will be times of pain and times of sorrow, but the love we have for each other and the beauty of life and all its magnificence will shine through. Finally, I hope and pray through my writing that I will help make this world a better place for you, my husband, son, daughter, all my nieces and nephews, and all future generations.

I learned a lot over the years and there were times when I felt like my life was over. Now, I look at each day as a blessing and a chance to help others, especially children. My passion drove me to publish two books of my work. By purchasing my books you are helping a child to avoid many years of pain. Your support is saving them from years of working through obstacles that test one's will and determination.
In my writing I strive to convey the message of the human spirit to overcome adversity, see the beauty of nature and know God’s healing love. As you read my books you will experience the journey and share in the transformation from pain to peace.
Net proceeds from the sale of the books is donated to The Support Center for Child Advocates of Philadelphia. Please visit their website www.sccalaw.org for more information.
