Three things defined Pam’s family growing up: alcoholism, inherited trauma, and secrets. On the outside, her middle-class family appeared successful, happy and well-adjusted. On the inside, her father’s alcoholism, and the generational legacy of addiction, held everyone captive.
For over thirty years the past would not be linked to the present until her father, after a near fatal intake of alcohol, chose sobriety The family was then faced with forging a healing path through the emotional wreckage that remained.
Miraculously, the search for truth brought love out of the shadows to shine light on her father’s long-held secret of childhood mistreatment and trauma.
The challenges along the path brought many gifts, slowly inspiring the bravery to grow and bestow the kind of forgiveness revealed only in the presence of true courage. In a journey neither father nor daughter could have imagined, alcoholism became a masterful teacher.
Yet their greatest teacher would come later as he lay dying from cancer. In a remarkable promise delivered just weeks before he died, an otherworldly presence told them death would not be their final separation. Their destiny to be together would continue into the afterlife, allowing for unprecedented healing.
Pam’s story will touch your heart. It will encourage you to see that every challenge, no matter how devastating, holds the key to your own healing. You aren’t alone with your struggles. There is always hope. And always waiting to be discovered is the power of the heart to transform relationships. Love and healing know no boundaries, not even death.
