About this ebook

"Her book speaks from the heart, albeit broken... It is because of Christy's passion, wisdom, persistence, and her love for her son that lives will be changed." —Julia Weber, Director, National Center on Gun Violence in Relationships

After my son’s tragic death, I had two choices. I could crawl into the corner and spend each day there, slowly dying. Or, I could choose to make Wyland’s life a legacy.

I’ve used humor to get me through every day since Wyland’s murder. I never thought of myself as a writer. I've always avoided putting my feelings on paper. Then, one day, I had an epiphany. I was going to write a book! The title came to me instantly. The memories flowed through effortlessly. I soon realized the narrator in my head all my life was guiding me to this point. 

I want to share my story hoping to bring awareness to those struggling in similar situations. Hopefully, in writing and publishing this book, it will reach other parents before a tragedy like mine unfolds, taking another innocent child. The decision to expose the heart-wrenching details of my life was difficult to make, but if just one child can be saved it will be worth it. No parent should go through the daily pain I feel. 

I bare my soul and share my experience of pain, tears, and a few laughs along the way. I wish to honor Wyland and keep his memory alive by sharing memories.

About the author

Christy grew up in Hanford, California. That same small town is where she raised Wyland for ten and a half years—until his tragic death shook the community.

Christy has spent most of her career in the service industry as a pharmacy technician, manicurist, yoga instructor, and volunteer at Wvland's school.

She is passionate about helping others and hopes a law in her son's honor will do just that. At this time, Christy and her team are unsure what Wyland's Law will entail, but are confident to make strides to see a change in protecting children from filicide.

She currently lives on the central coast of California, close to the beach she would often take Wyland to play at on their weekend getaways. She loves spending time with family and friends while enjoying everything coastal living offers.
