A true story of Life and Death and Survival. In December of 1997, my two youngest children were killed deliberately by their own father in South Africa. They died along with their father from carbon monoxide poisoning. I was left, along with my 14 year old surviving daughter. This is a deeply personal story but one which I felt compelled to share. It focuses on this tragic incident, how it affected my life and how I dealt with the overwhelming grief and guilt I had to endure. It was with a deep faith in God that my daughter and I were able live on and begin a new life for ourselves in the United States. Anyone who has known someone or had to cope with surviving your children should read this.
