Forgiveness is Possible Even in Impossible Circumstances
I definitely wanted to forgive him, but I just didn't know—in the moment—if my body would cooperate. "You know I love you." At the word love, my voice broke. By this time, tears were falling down my cheeks. I cleared my throat. "And I forgive you."
On March 28, 2010, Kate and Andy Grosmaire received two pieces of news that would forever change their lives.
The first was their worst nightmare: "Ann has been shot." And the second was the dumbfounding addendum: "Connor was the one who shot her."
Their nineteen-year-old daughter had been killed by her boyfriend, a young man who had lived with the family and had come to feel like part of it.
In a beautiful, tragic testament to the liberating power of forgiveness, Kate Grosmaire tells the story of her daughter's murder at the hand of her boyfriend—and the stunning, deliberate forgiveness and help that Kate and her husband offered to the young man who shattered their world.
Part memoir, part spiritual testimony, Forgiving My Daughter's Killer is the story of a family whose faith was put to the test and found the capacity to do far more than they could have thought or imagined.
