Overcoming My Mother's Addictions is a heart-wrenching but 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. Through her optimistic perspective, she has gained insight into the life lessons that have shaped her into the fine, thoughtful young lady she is today.
This book is written to inspire teens to recognize their true value and to understand that their parents' choices do not need to define their present and future happiness. It is also designed to help grandparents raising their grandchildren better understand the debilitating effects of adverse childhood experiences.
Counselors and teachers will find this book beneficial in opening the lines of communication with younger children to determine how best to provide them much-needed support.
This book is also written to inspire addicts to move into permanent recovery, encouraging them to break their destructive cycle and rebuild healthy relationships.
"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."
