Why I wrote this book.

The day my daughter was born, I became aware that a piece of me would live forever. It was no longer enough to wear clean underwear in case I ended up in the hospital, I needed to prepare a whole host of other things. Like who would take care of this little bundle of love if for some reason I couldn’t do it myself.

Suddenly, I was a mom. I was responsible for my daughter’s life and keenly aware that my choices could ripple through future generations.

If you are anything like me, you do not want to think about dying. Or going to a lawyer’s office and sorting through a whirlwind of legal terms like probate, per stirpes, trustees, executors, and health care directives is intimidating.

My book exists to help you navigate the decisions every parent must make, bravely and successfully.
