Snapshots A Story of Love, Loss, and Life

Most parents can't imagine what it would be like to lose one of their children - the grief and pain would be unthinkable. 

Cathy Sosnowsky not only experienced the loss of her son, Alex, at the young age of 17, but also her two adopted children, Michael and Tanya.  However, these two younger children weren't to a freak accident, but to the allure of drugs, alcohol and the mean streets.  Find out how Cathy deals with her pain and suffering through her poignant and, sometimes humorous, memoir; Snapshots A Story of Love, Loss, and Life.

This book takes the reader on a mother's journey.  Cathy's love for her children is strong and will break your heart as she holds nothing back in telling her tale - to take in two older children in need of love and a home is to be commended - only to have these children shun her and turn to the drug addled streets.

I have personally never felt the lose of a child, but my heart goes out to Cathy in her struggle to make sense of the life she was given.  Snapshots is truly a book to be read, especially if you're dealing with the loss of a child.

Sandie, this books looks so interesting, I can't wait to read it! I lost my daughter in a boating accident two summers ago and there still are times where it's hard to get out of bed in the morning. I am turning to friends for support and I have found sites like http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-dl to be helpful in the grieving process. I hope this helps someone as it is helping me.
