Congratulations to "Maureen C.", the winner in Dana's giveaway. Thank you to everyone who participated!
When I gave birth to my first child, I experienced a joy that was equal to nothing else, but the emotions that accompany parenthood were twofold. I felt pure fulfillment when holding my beautiful new daughter, but I also remember the fear that crept in every time she was out of my sight. Being a mother isn’t just about changing diapers and reading nursery rhymes. It’s a new world of worries and fears.
As a young woman, I never worried about my safety much. I guess like all young people, I felt a sense of immortality. Once I had my own child, that all changed. I not only worried about this new little being with whom I was responsible for, but I also realize how much this little being was dependent on me. She needed me for food, water, comfort. . .survival.
Yes, if anything would have happened to me, my daughter would have been cared for by someone, but someone is never the same as your own mother.
Precious Embrace explores this theme from two sides, the loss of a child and the loss of a parent. Ali and Johnny have both lost parents. They live everyday trying not to let these losses define who they are. But when Micah is stolen, Ali and Johnny experience the ultimate fear. The sickeningly intenseness of this fear rivals none other. Portraying this was no easy feat for me. I had to put my mind in a place I never, as a mother, wanted to go. It was difficult to say the least, but so worth the experience.
Ali and Johnny need get a grip on their fear and come together to support each other through what could or could not be the loss of Micah.
How do you live through the loss of your child?
How do you get out of bed every day when you don’t know if your child is dead or alive?
How do you move forward when your mind and body are riddled with despair?
Can Ali and Johnny come together and build the family they both desire when so many things conspire against them?
As the tag line suggests, Precious Embrace will take you on a rollercoaster ride between a new love, a missing child, and in the end, you’ll get to experience the beginning of a found family.
