Overcoming My Mother's Addictions

It is a heart-wrenching and inspiring true story about Lili, an 11-year-old girl who has faced tremendous challenges and upheavals in her formative years because of her mother’s addiction to drugs.  Lili gives us hope by displaying a positive outlook which has helped her overcome horrific situations.

Lili’s an amazing young woman, who is wise beyond her years.  Her story will inspire you in ways that may surprise you.  This is an exceptional story that kept me captivated from the first page all the way through to the end. I literally could not put this book down.  I highly recommend it to everyone of every age.

Devastating realities of how abuse and neglect can alter a child’s life are simply stated in this true story of one girl’s journey. Not just another story, but a heart-felt truth of abuse and neglect told through the eyes of a child. As a psychotherapist for over 25 years, I have seen how the trauma of abuse and neglect forever changes how one sees the world. Having at least one strong, positive support person in an abused person’s life can provide the needed hope for a positively changed future.   Lili’s journey is far from over but her hope for being a world changer and helping others understand the effects of abuse and neglect will continue to empower her and readers of her story.

This book went right into my heart. It made me emotional, but it also made me hopeful. This book presents an opportunity! Just think about how it can help many young people like Lili. This is Lili’s story, but it might also be yours. You are not alone, so please read it, young or old, don’t miss out. I recommend it warmly.

My husband Phil, granddaughter Lili, and I currently live in the lovely small town of Crossville, Tennessee, USA.

I view my life as a continuous opportunity to learn and to grow.  I have two goals every day:  To learn something new and to leave someone with whom I have come into contact feeling better about themself.

I have spent my life in the pursuit of gaining knowledge and developing wisdom.  I  have opened myself to finding mentors like Zig Ziglar, Bob Proctor, Peggy McColl and others to teach me how to create a life that manifests all of my heart’s desires.
