Mother Can You Hear Me Now?
Divorced with four children by the age of twenty-two, Emory imagined a new life for herself, a life that went beyond the traumatic mental and physical abuse she endured as a child under the neglectful watch of an addict mother.
Emory was born after only six months in the womb, a survivor of a failed abortion. Raised by her three-year-old brother and nestled in the dresser drawer in which she slept, her earliest moments were those of pain and rejection.
Yet despite all the odds stacked against her, she found true love in adulthood with her partner. From psychiatric wards to poverty to sexual abuse, Emory survived. Mother, Can You Hear Me Now? is her story.
