Description
Every family has its hidden struggles. The Hoemke family is no different. Hayden Hoemke, the oldest of four beautiful children, began experimenting with and abusing substances at a young age, which led to his opioid addiction. For eight years, not only did he hurt himself but his family agonized as they tried desperately to seek help for him. At the young age of twenty-two, Hayden died tragically due to an overdose, and the family was forever changed. Today, Hayden's mother, Susán Hoemke, bravely shares her story, the devastation of losing a child and the fight to rebuild her family. She unflinchingly relates how the mental and physical impact of the drugs on Hayden's body turned her happy, creative son into a stranger in their home. Emotional, raw, and gripping, this memoir serves as a wake-up call to American about the opioid epidemic sweeping the country and as a resource of hope and help to other families. Book jacket.

display_description In this emotional memoir, Susn Hoemke divulges the heart-wrenching story of her son Hayden's eight-year battle with drug addiction, and his tragic death at age twenty two. Through the pain of losing a child, Susn unflinchingly relates the crimes that her son's desperation for a fix drove him to commit, and how the mental and physical impact of the drugs on his body turned her happy, creative son into a stranger in their home. The years surrounding Hayden's death have been some of the most difficult in the family's life, his addiction not only affecting him but all those around him. Rebuilding their home and family, and attempting to see light in the darkest days they'd ever experienced proved to be an incredibly difficult effort, but not impossible. Hoemke hopes that her family's story will serve as a wake-up call to people everywhere about the drug epidemic across this country, and as a song of hope for those suffering through what her family has. --from Goodreads.com.
