A space for children of alcoholics to be feel acknowledged and valued

While I was growing up my Mom struggled with Alcoholism. Codependency and dysfunction were the norm with my family. My Moms addiction set the pace for our family.

My Mom lost her battle with addiction in 2015.

In late 2018 I began my healing journey. I tell my story in hopes of bringing attention to the struggle that families facing addiction face. I want to break the stigma so that a new generation of children can openly tell their stories and get the help they need.
