This book contains the letters I wrote to my five-year-old son during the year after his father committed suicide. I tried to record how he felt and acted in relation to this traumatic event, and to do so from his perspective. I want to give it to him when he's older. In the meantime, I hope that our experience could help others in a similar situation, or who are going through other types of trauma or grief.
