“Out of Darkness” is the story of my son, Michael, and the grief we suffered due to our loss. Nothing can be more painful to a mother than to lose a child who is dearly loved.
Michael’s passing had a huge impact on our family and friends. I could not accept that my precious son was gone. We all worked hard to move on, but nothing could stop the pain. Through the years my depression and guilt worsened until I was able to face the truth and receive my healing. Michael was dead and he took his own life.
When I first started writing this book, it was to help others with their pain, not fully understanding the healing it would bring for me and my family. Sharing the story of Michael has been the most effective therapy for us all. Now we can talk about him again and remember the good along with the bad. By sharing his story, we now have our joy and peace back. It has been a long journey. My hope is that it will help others to stop and think before making a decision to give up on life.
Tomorrow is a new day and where there is life, there is hope.
