This book gives an invaluable insight into all that can happen when our children ‘fly the coop’ written from the heart, from first hand experience, from the pain, the reality and the truth from what was, to what is, to what can be!

We are taken gently and with exquisite compassion thru’ the steps of transition and given practical suggestions and examples to guide us and bring us the freedom to revel in who we are! now! at this moment in our lives!

We can truly acknowledge and ultimately celebrate ourselves – with all the discovered aspects of what new directions we might take, what we can achieve, what we can change and how we can bring about those changes – we are shown the glorious possibilities of choice!“
