Learning her son, Kirk, was dead at seventeen hit Sandra Anderson hard. And then, when she thought she could take no more, the hammering intensified. As she was coping with her tragic loss, details of Kirk’s secret life began emerging, and each new revelation pounded her tender heart.
Every finding caused Sandra to reexamine her son’s life, as well as her part in it. Had Kirk shown signs of what had been going on, and she had just missed them? Had he ever asked for help? Was Kirk’s unruly behavior his way of indicating he desperately needed someone to rescue him?
Equally troubling was the loss of trust. Those whom Sandra had explicitly entrusted with the care of her son now fell under an ugly, sickening shadow. Every relationship Kirk had now came under question. Every incident of his life now caused Sandra doubts, despair, and never-ending reflections.
A testament to a mother’s ability to overcome the deepest loss, Troubled Mother, Troubled Son walks the path from loss to acceptance to finally forgiveness.
