Fasten your seat belt as you take a journey with author Gayle Carson Lagman-Creswick, mother of four biological sons, two adopted daughters, and a grandson, as she meets head-on with the challenges put forth by daughter Mary, who unbeknownst to them, was born of a drug-addicted, biological mother. Gayle, a successful executive in the healthcare and retirement industry, becomes a single mom and is faced with the awesome task of dealing with normal child-rearing, plus the special needs of her two adopted daughters . all while pursuing a demanding career. Daughter Mary faces spoiling, sexual abuse, violence, hospitalization, and prison. This roller-coaster family comes face-to-face with stabbing, near explosions, and a point-blank gun event. This mother understands unconditional love, has a forgiving nature, and has a determination not to give up on this daughter, who is finally diagnosed and treated in her thirties for Bipolar Disorder.
