As the mother of two grown children and four adopted children with special needs, Jillian says she always tried to play the role of perfect, therapeutic mother. "That role nearly buried me," she says. "This book helped me to see that really my gift to my children is that I'm present. That I'm with them. That I'm here."
Doug says he's also noticed changes in the way Jillian lives her life. "She's much more peaceful," he says. "It's been a wonderful change in the past few weeks."
Now that she's been stripped of her material wealth and her ego, Jillian says she's getting the best sleep she's had in years. "I sleep very peacefully."
