Not Without My Children

Friends have been asking me to tell my story of my life, including the loss of my children. It is the story of a tragic and surreal road traveled told in the words of a person who has the tenacity not to be defeated. The past five years have slipped like water through my fingers as I struggle to grab a firm hold of the future, but my grasp I will ultimately accomplish will be one of triumph. Mine and my children's futures have changed many times over from the original vision of the story I thought would be, but that is also part of the struggle, .... to be molded and changed for the better as I grow and accept what reality is and has as gifts for me.
