Publisher Description

It never should have happened. That’s what Wendy Adamson thought as she sat handcuffed in the back seat of a squad car. In fact, Wendy could vaguely remember a time when she had dreams of making a difference in the world. So how was it that her life had gotten so far off track? Follow the journey of a devoted wife and little league mom from falling down the rabbit hole of methamphetamine addiction and gun violence through the selfless act that would lead to saving her own life through sobriety.

This is a story about Wendy’s undoing, and the long and delicate reassembly it would take to put her life back together again, a life that is beyond just existing, but a continuous celebration of all things living. Because when you stand on the precipice of addiction, the only way to survive the jump is to live each day like you may never have another. Living becomes the ultimate privilege. Motherhood becomes the ultimate gift, and Wendy knows that the only way to keep what she has is to continue to give it away.

Lauren M. D. ,

A must read

Wendy has a special talent for story telling, and not just any story but her own. Mother Load is a demonstration of the humanity and pain that is behind the addiction. Her ability to recall some of the most painful moments of her life and weave in humor, grace, vulnerability and hope makes Mother Load a must read. Wendy shows that despite being in the throws of addiction and trauma there can always be a way out. I especially recommend this book for people in the helping field, people with substance use problems, family members with loved ones struggle with substance use, and anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of addiction.
