About the Author
Editors Dawn Daum and Joyelle Brandt are mothers and writers. Dawn lives on the East Coast of America with her husband and children, Joyelle lives on the west coast of Canada with her husband and children. These two moms are both survivors of childhood abuse who went looking for books about parenting after childhood trauma and couldn’t find any. After a fateful meeting online, they embarked on collecting the stories of other survivor parents. The publication of this book is the realization of their dream to create that parenting book they went looking for and never found.

This book shows the power of parents and survivors coming together for one another. Survival is not guaranteed and some of our precious peers have not made it and it's not because they lacked personal resilience but suffered too much without enough support. Abuse and neglect in the early years can be life-threatening and life-altering. That's not something we can forget.
However, parents are instrumental, critical and on the front lines of making things better for ourselves, our kids and future generations. We deserve a voice, to be part of the conversation and not to just have a seat at the table but to help shape the our narratives and the trauma-informed movement meant to support us.
This book is a beautiful beginning and shows why and how parents are needed as well as what parents need most.
I'm honored to know Joyelle Brandt and Dawn Daum who have worked tirelessly to make this resource available and reflective of parents. Kudos to them!
