Just Keep Going: The Book

Sarah’s book was written based on ten years of journal entries chronicling the heartache of watching her son, Ted, slip away from her family and walk into the welcoming arms of what turned out to be drug and alcohol addiction.

From the Introduction:

“As mothers, we advocate for our children. We kiss boo-boos, cheer them on from the bleachers, and encourage them at the kitchen table. We celebrate their victories and console them on their failures. We defend them, brag about them to our own mothers, and occasionally deliver a school assignment forgotten on the bedroom floor.

“When their spirits leave their connection to ours to pursue a substance, person, lifestyle or seduction, we may eventually find that there is nothing we can do to fix this situation. We learn to pray.”
