Divorce is a messy, emotional event in anyone's life. The separation of the union between two people who thought that "forever" really did apply to them has enough trauma to fill any novel or blockbuster movie. But when children are thrown into the mix an already explosive situation takes on a heart-breaking perspective that most parents are not ready to deal with. Broken Strings: Wisdom for Divorced and Separated Families is an offering to the families who are currently navigating through a divorce or separation. It is also for those who made the trip previously and are now finding that it isn't really ever finished. Separation is a life-altering experience for everyone involved, today and into the future of each family. As such it deserves more than endless repetitive lists or lengthy academic studies that divorced parents don't have time to read. It demands that we all help each other from one side of the chasm to the other by building a bridge constructed of the truth as experienced by someone who has already been on the journey. The author is a survivor of fifteen years of divorced parenting, and recognizes that separated families are part of the fabric of today's society, making their way along a new path as best they can. Although their structure has been altered, these families can find their way to a new reality and can be healthy again.
