Those Children Are Ours

How can a mother abandon her children?

Jennie Bateman screamed at her daughters, cursed her husband, turned her back on her family, and walked away. Twelve years later, she petitions the family court for visitation with her daughters, Alexis and Christa, and unless she can convince a judge to allow her to see them, unless she can convince her children to allow her to be their mother, she will not be able to find the peace she desperately wants. The judge is reluctant to grant Jennie’s request, but ultimately orders three trial visits. Jennie fears that if persuading the judge to let her see her children was difficult, then convincing them to allow her to be a part of their lives may be impossible. What happens as she reaches out to them tests her confidence in herself, and threatens their very lives.

 

A must read!

This was such an emotional book. I have never met anyone whose Bipolar but now I can imagine how difficult it is. This is the story of Jennie who had an abusive childhood. After being married and having 2 children, she decides to leave them. This was a little hard for me to understand because I can’t imagine ever being able to leave my boys. I have a horrible time leaving them on the first day of school. Anyway back to the book. Years go by and Jennie decides she wants to see how her children are. I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil the book, but it is definitely one that you should read! I did receive this product discounted or free of charge in exchange for a review, however all opinions are 100% honest based on my own experience.
