7 Letters to My Mother is one attempt to reach out to an estranged parent and provide whatever small sense of relief possible through the sharing of one’s truth.

This collection of letters is extremely personal and, as such, is not open to commentary from readers. The collection is made public in the hopes that not only will it be seen by the subject of the letters but also by anyone who may need to know they are not alone in the life-shaping experience of parental estrangement.
