This is one of those books that I looked at the title and thought "just what I need". I didn't even look at the back to see what it was about, which obviously it is not what I had thought.

This was not what I expected, but it was really good. The author was trying to deal with the fact that her son was homosexual, however the book was written in away that it could speak to any Mom who was having to deal with anykind of difficulty with a child. Don't let it throw you off that this is the issue....it won't matter. There are so many things that I found in this book that was helpful and inspiring.
