Pregnant at 18, Theresa left her family and small town to live amongst strangers in a maternity home. Months later, she gave birth, relinquished her son, and departed alone, hoping to begin a new life. Instead, she found herself derailed by emotions she could not face and by losses that continued to accumulate. The lack of tools and knowledge needed to address her grief left her ill prepared which led to more destructive behaviours and emotions that lasted for years.
Her journey reveals to us the pain and burden of secrets and unresolved grief. This book is a guide for anyone struggling with a loss—someone who feels stuck but desires a better path for their lives. You will find: the courage to acknowledge and accept your situation; a willingness to define, address, and truly feel all of your emotions; the work needed for forgiveness; the strength to discover who you really are (without the baggage); and the determination to see the process through to find peace.
