Each story was selected specifically to open doors of perception to the recognition that we all have bonding and dissolving, deepening and disheartening, transforming and traumatic, healing and hateful encounters with our mothers.

The TRUTH is that our individual experiences combine to describe a collective and recognizable whole  - in much the same way that gathered shards from a broken mirror illuminate a whole reflection.

"...no matter how loudly we proclaim the denial. When faced with a familiar situation, we react in much the same way we watched our mother react."
