“Thirty years later, I was inspired by a woman who had written about her own spiritual journey. Midway through the book, I thought to myself, ‘I can write a much better story and at the same time, share the challenges of choosing to be a non-custodial mother.’
Not in a million years would I dream up such a life for myself. As a child, all I ever imagined was that I would get married as early as possible, have children and live happily ever after; end of story. Someone – I don’t know who, must have put a curse on me; the one that says, ‘May you have an interesting life.’ Why else would a good Catholic girl end up having a life like this? What happened to my dream of being a happy mom and playing with my children?”
