How did She come to write this book?

Unknowingly, my book originated when I started blogging to share what I learned with my friends.

Because I was fortunate to be adopted at birth, my parents were old enough to be my grandparents. So, I became a family caregiver many years prior to most of my contemporaries in the baby boomer generation. This book grew from my desire to share what I learned on my caregiving journey with my friends who were not yet caregivers, with the hope they wouldn’t have to “reinvent the wheel” when it was their turn to care for their loved ones and to reassure them they are not alone on their journey.
