What a wonderful story.  Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to endorse such a meaningful and insightful work.” -William Steele, PsyD, MSW, Founder, The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children


“Chasing Lilly is an eye-opening look into the world of mental illness from the prospective of a parent. Her harrowing tales make it easy to forget that Lilly is a real girl.  As an educator, I would recommend this book to anyone who works with individuals with emotional disturbances.”   -Bryan Sawyer, LIVE!
