As of 2009 over 13 million children in the United States are being raised by a single parent. What if those 13 million never saw the other parent, but ached to do so? Every child has a mother. Every child has a father. Every child has a dream. For some, it is a dream of connecting to both their mother and their father. In Things I Wish You Knew, author Melanie Lightbourn-Rowe takes you on a heartfelt journey as you eavesdrop on an intimate conversation between a child and his absent father. From birth to adulthood, hear the hope, know the reality, feel the pain, and rejoice in the reconciliation that is to come! For every child who has ever wanted to have this conversation, let these words speak for you. For in its pages are things we all wish someone in our lives knew!
