I couldn't put the book down. I found that Dave's books have helped me tremendously. I myself have come from an abusive childhood with a mother that made me feel all my life that she did not love me, want me. As I read the books, I kept thinking if Dave and I are related as we were abused in almost the same exact way by our parents. I didn't go through exactly what Dave went through in a child called it, however, my home life wasn't any better. I also didn't know that abuse was a cycle that was passed down to our own children as I came from a time just like Dave where you do not talk about child abuse outside your home. "What happen's in your home, stay's in your home".
Abuse was passed on to me and once my ex-husband whom I loved with all my heart left me and my son, I became totally depressed and started to abuse my son like my mom, brother and older sister had abused me. Once I was put on the miracle pill of antidepressants, my life changed for the best. I can now say that after reading Dave's books, I can admit to having abused my son as well as as help him heal from my abuse.
I can now break the cycle I did not know existed until I read these books. These books have made a huge difference in my life because, I can now start to heal and forgive as well as be forgiven by my son. My mom has since pasted away and never once did she ask for my forgiveness for what she did to me only because she believed she never abused me or any of my sister's or brother. How sad!
I am so blessed that God has put my son David into my life as I do cherish him with all my heart and soul. I am very blessed that I was able to read Dave's books and get a grip on what happened to me and start the healing process for both myself and my son.
Thank you so much!!!!
