Description


"Her book speaks from the heart, albeit broken... It is because of Christy's passion, wisdom, persistence, and her love for her son that lives will be changed." -Julia Weber, Director, National Center on Gun Violence in Relationships


After my son's tragic death, I had two choices. I could crawl into the corner and spend each day there, slowly dying. Or, I could choose to make Wyland's life a legacy.


I've used humor to get me through every day since Wyland's murder. I never thought of myself as a writer. I've always avoided putting my feelings on paper. Then, one day, I had an epiphany. I was going to write a book The title came to me instantly. The memories flowed through effortlessly. I soon realized the narrator in my head all my life was guiding me to this point.


I want to share my story hoping to bring awareness to those struggling in similar situations. Hopefully, in writing and publishing this book, it will reach other parents before a tragedy like mine unfolds, taking another innocent child. The decision to expose the heart-wrenching details of my life was difficult to make, but if just one child can be saved it will be worth it. No parent should go through the daily pain I feel.


I bare my soul and share my experience of pain, tears, and a few laughs along the way. I wish to honor Wyland and keep his memory alive by sharing memories.
