The worst nightmare – and the worst wound – for any parent is the loss of a child. Such a loss cuts to the core of one’s spirit and soul.

Practical, busy, grounded. All adjectives that could be applied to Donna.

Keeping up with all the demands of her busy life, spirituality was not at the forefront of Donna's mind.
