Grandma Debbie – The Cradle of Life
Debra Cannamore Lee didn’t know how to answer the simple question, “Do you have any children?” She turned to her mother for advice, her family and friends for support, and her heavenly Father for strength. Her Christian upbringing in a close-knit family gave her the foundation to face everything life threw at her—teenage pregnancy, job searches, illness, and the death of her only child. Debra shares her struggles and how she managed to come out of the darkness as a way to give hope to others facing similar circumstances.
At a time when more parents are losing their children too soon, Grandma Debbie offers wisdom and hope in a strikingly honest portrait of grief, remembrance, and healing.
