No one dreams of raising a drug addict. In Mothering Addiction, Lynda Harrison Hatcher tells the heart-wrenching story of her turbulent journey as the mother of a child who desperately struggled with a heroin addiction -- a story of the daily tests, constant trials, and unending tribulations of raising a son whose life has been derailed by drugs. The mothering instinct is to fix, smooth over, repair, cover up, bandage, or, if all else fails, beat the crap out of anything that hurts our children. We think we can control what they eat, what they wear, their school, their friends. Then addiction lumbers in, sniffs the air for signs of weakness, licks its chops, sharpens its claws, and terrorizes us before knocking us flat and ripping our hearts out. Funny, sad, compelling, and brave, Hatcher brings perspective and guidance to any parent struggling with a child whose life has been turned upside down.
