I Promised God

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 178 pages

I Promised God is a true, human-interest story. It deals with a family's anguished unyielding fight to save a son from the worst that life can deal us. Yet it is also a story of survival. My hope, as the author and mother of a courageous son, whose life was lost for two decades, is that in sharing our family's story with others, they might find strength in it for their own lives.

The story covers the complex environment of my oldest son's early years, his developing character of kindness and positive influence, strikingly evident until he reaches adolescence, when his promising young life is suddenly dead-ended by circumstances beyond his understanding or control. The reason for writing this story is to fulfill a promise I made to God at a dark, seemingly hopeless moment. It is my desire that by revealing an intimate chronicle of our lives, I might reach someone who is suffering and in need of the means that helped me maintain the emotional, intellectual and physical energy to cope with prolonged disaster.

And through the story, I hope to send the reader a personal message. Even if you are often alone, desperately trying to help your loved one, find and indulge in activities that sooth you and give you peace. You will regenerate strength to persevere for your loved one and help other family members meet their needs as well. I believe that God gave us each other, so that no one need ever walk or cry alone.
