Rainbows and Teardrops is my personal story of early childhood. It is about perceiving the world and the people in it through the heart and mind of a child.
Rainbows and Teardrops is an emotionally charged, real life drama that shares fear, pain, determination, hope and love.
This is not a book about blame or judgement, more about how we begin to be in the world using our natural gifts and talents to overcome adversity. How to leave the past in the past while unconsciously transforming our gifts and talents into strengths, skills and resources that will serve us well later on in life.
Rainbows and Teardrops is my tribute to parental patience, courage, endurance and unconditional love. This is a story about the survival of the human spirit.
Sharing my story has been an emotional journey and I hope that anyone who cares for children including parents, teachers, nurses, doctors and other professional carers will benefit from this insight into a childs world. It is often difficult for carers, especially professional carers, to recognise and evaluate the emotional damage that inappropriate adult behaviour has upon a child.
As Helen Keller (1880-1968) once said:
I am only one, but I still am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something.
