"Thank you for Done With The Crying: Help and Healing for Mothers
of Estranged Adult Children. The book is a must read for parents of
estranged adult children and mental health professionals working
with these families. Sheri McGregor's work is a breath of fresh air
offering a new perspective and providing support, encouragement,
resources, and compassion to good parents that have found
themselves in an unimaginable situation." ----Maritza Parks, LMHC,

cover, dads, this is for you too! Done with the Crying is for any
(and all) family member who wants to heal and move forward. This
wonderful book will help you see how you can hold your chin up
high, dry your eyes, and get on with your life." ----Joi Sigers,

"Done With the Crying also provides much time for reflection, for taking time to think about ones life and to read the stories of other women who are going through a similar situation. The book is easy to read, and provides much support and insight in a gentle and understanding way." ---Hennie Weiss, M.A., Metapsychology Online Reviews
"This is my best resource to assist families whose adult children have rejected them. In my role as a family life educator, I work with those affected by a loved one's mental illness, and the sad phenomenon of estrangement is rampant. I've searched for resources and education, but there is precious little available to help rejected parents move forward. It did not take me many pages in to see the value for my work, and I often recommend this compassionately written book to parents and families who are in so much pain." ---Mara J.
