    Janice, this is amazing. I’d seen the book mentioned and thought, my girls are grown, we’re past anything like this, so I don’t need this book. This interview is so incredible that I’ve added this book to my must have wish list. I can’t wait to read it now. These two women are unbelievably inspiring. And aren’t they both beautiful? That struck me immediately. Thank you so much for doing this. I love it when I witness a tragedy being turned around and used as a way to help others who are going through their own tragedy.

    GREAT interview! A huge thank you to you Janice and to Mia and Claire for this interview.

    May God Bless them both as they continue to encourage others!

    Their book remains on my nightstand…..which, as I have posted, blesses my mother’s-aching-heart each and everytime I look at it’s cover!

    I don’t know if I could read the book, I am an incest survivor… but I can certainly appreciate all the wonderful things that Claire and Mia are striving for. I applaude their strength and courage, for sharing their story. I will be checking out the websites, though. Thanks for sharing their story with us. :O)

    I’m currently reading the book. It is just heart wrenching to read the circumstances which led Mia to her choices. My daughter is currently in the same program Mia was in and I can very much understand Claire’s pain and confusion when she was having to make the decision to send her away. Also the best decision I ever made. I think Claire will agree.

    I picked up your book read the cover and felt an emormous rush of empathy. I put it back, tears came to my eyes. I know what this feels like.
    Good nieghborhood, schools, it doesn’t matter. There is a herion epidemic in high schools all over the US. Right now.
    My Mia got involved with a boy, what followed was 3 years of rehab, relaspes, pain and confusion. I swore I would never give up.
    She has finally made sense of her own path. I’m learning to breathe again. I love her very much and welcome her back.
    When I feel ready I’ll read it.

    I am in the middle of the book right now and I feel very frustrated with Mia. I am rooting for Claire at this point. The book is very well written, but I really hope that Mia truly knows just how lucky she is to have a mother that could STILL love her. I have two daughters whom I adore more than anything, and I follow the saying “walk a day in someone elses shoes” but, I don’t know if I could be so forgiving….. Mia, you are a hard pill to swallow…. That being said, I give my congrats to you both for your successes. It’s truly a fairy tale that I hope others (in the same situation) can experience.

    I absolutely loved your book. It was terrific. I too had gone through a similar situation with my son. He just turned 19 last month and has come such a long way. Our ordeal started about 27 1/2 monthw ago. He is now living in Tucson AZ and going to college. I have tried contacting you on you web site but it doesn’t allow me to get through. I also wanted to go to your speaking engagement on May 7th at JCC of greater Monmouth County but when I called to make a reservation they said it had been cancelled. I was truly upset. If you can let me know when you will be speaking anywhere in NJ please let me know. It would be a pleaure to meet the both of you. I live in South Jersey was willing to travel to hear you speak. Again, thank you for doing such a great job with your book. A fan of your writing. Mindy G

    You have awakened something in me that I can only pray will help my daughter (and myself) deal with the years of substance and sexual abuse….and finally realizing that being ‘Claire’ at the height of my pain and worry has only pushed my daughter deeper into her addictions. The light has been turned on….now figuring out what to do with it is my next journey! Thank you both!

    Wow! Just finished the book and I am so thankful for the gift of insight Claire & Mia gave me and all of their readers. I hope it allows me to be a better mother to my sixteen year old daughter who
    thankfully hasn’t had to endure what Mia went through. Thank you for your honesty and for sharing your personal stories so we can have a better undestanding of ourselves and our children.

    i’m doing a book report on this book right now and i really enjoyed it. it’s just frustrating because my older brother went through the same program and i went to the seminars and everything and he changed and it was wonderful but now he is back at his old behavior and i don’t know why. it is so frustrating. i love him so much and wish he would snap out of it but i don’t know if he ever will. he’s 21 which should be way past maturing point, don’t you think? i just wish my brother turned out like Mia. Not all people do though i suppose.

    I read this book and absolutely could not put it down. It is one of the most powerful works I have ever read. It felt as if it were a personal journey. I work with kids and I think the insight into other people’s worlds gives me tools to better help them. I surely count your book as a tool to utilize.

    Thank you Claire and Mia. I started reading your book and could’nt put it down. I was so surprised and amazed when I got to the part about the very same program I sent my two children to. I got out my white seminar notebook with all the “dots” on it and read it again. Now 10 years later. I was discovered and focused all over again! My son is now 26 and my daughter is 27. I plan to buy them copies of your book so that they to may vist their magical child once again. Thank you for sharing your journy with us. I will always remember and smile.
    Love to you both Linda from Maryland

    I’m reading Come Back for the third time. Your story is amazing. Not to mention, beautifully told. Very inspirational in more ways than one. May God continue to bless you both. Thank you.
