The death of your child breaks you. With some luck, you may be able to rebuild most of who you were before that loss so that you are not a complete stranger, even to yourself. Even then, you know that you will never be the same again. There will always be a piece of you missing, leaving you forever broken. With the loss of her son, Jeramie, to a car accident, author Daynabelle Anderson found this to be true of herself: a forever broken mom. She then had to decide whether to fight it and live her life, trying in vain to be whole again, only to punish herself over and over when her efforts resulted in failure. Or she could accept that this was who she was now--to allow herself to be broken and to forgive herself for it. She chose the latter, and now she chronicles her journey into that brokenness. This personal narrative offers one mother's story and her perspective on how to live with grief, intended for anyone who has lost a loved one and who feels pressured to move on.

This is the story of letters written to my son while he was incarcerated in county jail. My story begins when my son Jonathan was a minor and living with his mother after his parents’ divorce. Jon took his mother’s car and ran into a lady’s porch. The police were called and found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the car. Prior to this, Jon was “hanging out” with a group of young goths (Satanic group). This was a young group of kids dressed in black and worshiping the devil. John went to court and was sentenced to probation for one year for his first offence in the First Offenders Program. When he completed the course, the conviction would be sponged from his record. Jon saw his probation officer monthly. John had drugs in his drug tests, and his attitude did not change. The probation officer gave him a second chance, and he was sentenced to another year of probation. Jon’s mother called me and asked me to take Jon and take him to his probation meetings. I did this, and Jon was still hanging out with the goths and still was not passing his drug tests. Probation sent Jon to court, and he was put in work release. Work release placed Jon at Wendy’s. The first night of work, Jon returned from Wendy’s high; he was then placed in the main jail. This is when the letters between Jon and I began, and the story begins.

A Letter to My Son copyright (c) 2004, 2009 by Kim S. All rights reserved. A few people have asked me, "Is this book an autobiography? It sure sounds like you." The answer to that question is: "Yes and no." A Letter to My Son is based on some of my life experiences; but, many of the characters inside are fictional, and some of the story ideas were sparked by nothing more than a telephone conversation. In retrospect, this book is more a reflection of my mindset, at that time, than my whole reality. I saw myself as a victim in life, stemming from a family tragedy that occurred when I was a teenager; and, this is the vantage point from which I continued to view the world around me for many years to come. The stories in A Letter to My Son are the snippets of my life experience that I chose to focus on back then. Evidently, the more I dwelled upon this notion that I was a casualty of unfair circumstance, the more I attracted people and situations that proved me right. I believe we always prove ourselves right. We all receive what we expect to receive from life, and we attract the circumstances that match our personal vibrations at any given time. This is a natural, impartial law of our universe-just as gravity is-and I believe this book demonstrates it very clearly. At the time I wrote A Letter to My Son, I had no idea why I was so compelled to purge these pessimistic thoughts from my system in such a public way. But, several years later, I know. It's as though it was meant to be, all along, and my second and third books bring it all full circle. I was saying "good-bye" to that troubled phase in my life and opening myself up to something new. Two and a half years later, "something new" arrived-a more optimistic viewpoint that changed the path I was on and spawned the creation of my second book titled A Letter to My Daughter. About the Author When Kim S. published her first book, A Letter to My Son, in 2004, she had no idea why she was compelled to purge her negativity in such a public way. But several years later, she knows. It s as though it was meant to be all along, and her second and third books bring it all full circle. A Letter to My Son was based on some of Kim s life experiences, but many of the characters were fictional and some of the story ideas were sparked by nothing more than a telephone conversation. The book, which stemmed from a family tragedy that happened when she was a teenager, was a reflection of her mindset at the time. She saw herself as a victim of circumstance, and this was the vantage point she viewed the world from for many years to come. After being introduced to the Law of Attraction in early 2007, Kim S. was so inspired that she wrote and published her second book, A Letter to My Daughter, in record speed. It expressed a joyful time in her life, and it communicated a message of being true to yourself while respecting other people s choices. Kim resolved to put this theory to the test to determine, for herself, if it is true that we get what we focus on. After nearly three years of consciously and deliberately applying the principles of the Law of Attraction in her life, she is proud to present her third book, titled 11:11. Kim S. believes we always prove ourselves right. We all receive what we expect to receive from life, and we attract the circumstances that match our personal vibrations at any given time. This is a natural, impartial law of our universe just as gravity is and each of her books demonstrates it very clearly in its own way. "

This 38-page report examines Russia's response to European Court judgments on cases from Chechnya. In almost all of the 115 rulings, the court concluded that Russia was responsible for extrajudicial executions, torture, and enforced disappearances, and that it had failed to investigate these crimes. In the 33 cases researched by Human Rights Watch, Russia has still not brought a single perpetrator to justice, even in cases in which those who participated in or commanded the operations that led to violations are named in the European Court judgments--Publisher's website.

Many years ago, I was one of those naive expectant mothers who thought that a simple formula of faith, love and discipline would produce the perfect child. Those who had a problem child, I surmised, either didn't have enough religion in their home, didn't love their child enough or didn't discipline him/her enough. So when, much to my dismay and perplexity, my child began to display chronic problem behaviors I blamed myself. To make matters worse, the counselors we sought out for help blamed me also! As I searched for answers during this difficult time, however, I discovered many things about myself, my son, human nature and God that profoundly changed my views on parenting and religion. My discoveries also led to a better understanding of God's unconditional love and enabled me to give this most precious of all gifts to my first born child. My life has been tremendously blessed by going through this most challenging experience and I hope, as you read my story, that your life, and your parenting experience, will be enriched also.

This is the story of an ordinary woman whose grief - and love - for her only son compelled her to do something extraordinary. When Margaret Davis's beloved son Steven was murdered by his own wife, a Philippino former prostitute, she travelled across continents to track down her son's killers and bring them to justice, and to rescue her grandchildren. Based on Margaret's own diaries, notes and emails, this tells not only the awful but utterly compelling story of her perilous journey, but also of how she has dealt with her crippling grief, and how she has striven to save and protect two small children caught up in the violent crossfire of their parents' failing marriage. It is a tale of two cultures that clashed, with terrible results. And it is a tale of how one mother, faced with her worst nightmare, has fought for justice for her son and some kind of healing for herself and the others left behind after his appalling death.

Only about 1% of our children are able to tell that someone hurt them sexually. Parents are concerned of the sexual offender’s register list, but many of these sexual predators are in our family. I want my story to change how we as parents handle the trauma of our children, who have been sexually abused. I want my story to help children break the silence that they are terrorized into keeping. I want them to be able to tell all. I want parents to let God heal them of the guilt and embarrassment of someone sexually abusing their child, while they are helping the Police and DA prosecute these offenders. Our children need our help to be able to tell about their trauma and who did it. In addition, the law enforcement needs our help. I have designed an Angel Doll that holds a heart in her hands. The heart opens up and has the poem in it “Tell It All My Girl”. I want to design a Aslan lion with the poem on his back “Tell It All My Son” with permission of Chronicles Of Narnia. I want to join up with a group to distribute the Angel Doll and Aslan Lion to as many girls and boys who have been sexually abused as I can.

For over 2,000 years after the physical death of Jesus Christ on the Cross, mankind has been asking serious questions about the purpose of life here on earth due to religious confusion, premature deaths, diseases, poverty, famine, illnesses, natural disasters, wars, terrorism, climate change, broken marriages, drought, corruptions, greed, depression, recessions, slavery, addiction, accidents, deformities, immorality, selfishness, repression, etc. Life has been so difficult for most inhabitants of this planet, especially people in poor and underdeveloped parts of the world. Many people have lost faith in God, and some do not even believe that He exists. This book explains my true life story, the story leading up to the external voice of God to me, the reason for the worlds problems, and also the ultimate solutions to the worlds unending problems. Gods anointed single worldwide leader is the only person who can take everyone around the globe forward to everlasting unity, peace, and stability. I am back and ready to put things right once and for all here on planet earth, and I want leaders of this present world to seriously consider my claim as the ultimate leader of the entire world. This book is primarily directed to every soul on this planet, especially believers of the existence of the Almighty God, mostly Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and all other religious establishments that exist. We must all now stand up together for what we believe to be true and move the people of this planet to the promised world. Almighty God will richly bless you as you read this book with an open mind. When the world has lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of myself, but as My Father taught and directs Me, I speak these things. The purpose of life here on earth is to honour and obey Gods words, worship Him by faith, in truth and in spirit, to work hard and help each other and then enjoy the beauty and majesty of this planet in unity, peace, love and harmony and also the planets our Father is about to reveal to mankind. The ultimate purpose of life is to become gods and to lead an everlasting life.

In this fascinating memoir the Dalai Lama’s mother tells a compelling woman’s story. With vivid and intimate details, she recounts her life’s humble beginning, the customs and rituals of old Tibet, the births of her sixteen children (only seven of whom survived), learning her son’s remarkable destiny, the family’s arduous move to Lhasa before the Chinese invasion of Tibet, and their escape and eventual exile. Rich in historic and cultural details, this moving memoir personalizes the history of the Tibetan people—the magic of their culture, the role of their women, and their ancient ideals of compassion, faith, and equanimity.
