Today I’d like to highlight two guest posts that were published here on the blog before I even launched Motherhood Unadorned. My co-captain for the Out of the Darkness walk benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is my friend and fellow advocate Tracie Mason Holton. She lost her younger sister Leslie to mental illness and suicide in 2009, and inherited Leslie’s 15-year-old daughter Brelin. Both Tracie and Brelin honored me by writing their two unique perspectives on the aftermath of suicide. Please click through and check out their stories.
