This true life story tells of the turbulent life of a woman who suffered abuse and humiliation as a child and young woman, and who later faced insurmountable challenges in providing care for a son inflicted with a bone disorder that required frequent surgery.

Book Description

This story is dedicated to the physically and mentally abused, as well as those who have raised physically or mentally challenged children, particularly those who raised them as a single parent—and for good reason, for it is a poignant account of how the author herself overcame horrendous obstacles, growing up with an alcoholic and violent parent, suffering abuse from certain siblings, and, to top it all, meeting the challenges as a single mother who had to take care of a son who had to undergo frequent surgery as a result of a rare and incurable bone disorder, osteogenesis-imperfecta. Through her patience, courage and endurance she is, in effect, an ‘earth angel’ whose true life story will provide comfort and strength for others who find themselves in similar situations.

About the Author

The author was raised in and around the Camrose Bawlf, Wetaskiwin area up to the time she was 12 years old, after which she and her family moved to Cardston. When she turned 17 she left home, pregnant, and lived in Lethbridge for six years, and thereafter in Edmonton for eight years because her son had to get his schooling at the Glenrose School Hospital. When she was 30 she moved back to Lethbridge, Alberta, where she has lived for the last 28 years.
