What Happens When You Search for Hope?

Beyond a Charmed Life, A Mother’s Unconditional Love is an inspirational memoir about a mother’s love for her special needs son with heartfelt stories and a triumphant spirit of overcoming insurmountable challenges. From caretaker to advocate role, author Barbara Huntress Tresness wants to share “you are not alone and hope does exist”. This is a story of tenacity, triumph and a spiritual awakening to the universal forces that help mother and child have an unbroken bond that transcends everything.

“Sharing our stories out loud helped me and helped others. It got easier as I began to tell some of what had happened to us. I kept many journals and wrote about my feelings good and bad because I never wanted Graham to think he was difficult for us to care for. I wanted him to know he was loved unconditionally.” - Barbara Huntress Tresness
