From the Author

They say there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you. For me, Breathe was that story.

The first reason I wrote this book was to tell you the story of my sons.Therefore, at it's heart? It's a love story. To all of my children. Butespecially to the ones who aren't here today.

I believe weshould share our pain as much as we share our joy. Maybe that's becauseI've had a lot of both in my life. But I know from experience that if we don't share our pain and our sorrow, when one of us finds ourselves inthose deep dark places, we feel very much alone. We wonder why everyoneelse is having a perfect life. And we wonder what's wrong with us.

When my sons died, I fell, WE fell, into the valley of the shadow of deathand that's exactly how it felt. The valley of the shadow of death. Icould probably write the Lonely Planet Guide to that place. But at thattime it was new to me and I searched for people to guide me, people whounderstood the horrible pain I found myself suddenly and completelysubmerged in. People who understood. And for those people? I'm eternally grateful. The second reason I wrote this book was to help other peoplelike me.

Breathe holds something for everyone, and the commentsI've been receiving bear witness to this. I am grateful for all of myreaders and this includes you, if you choose to come along for the ride. As I've said many times, for me the seven year journey of writing thisbook has been like the longest pregnancy ever and publishing it theliterary equivalent of birthing. So, just as Andy and I have wished forall of our children, I pray that this book will march forth and make the world a better place, that it will be treated kindly and that it willhelp people. And that it will have a long, long life.
