I wrote this book for Alex when he was four years old. My heart was to help Alex know the love of Christ through a children's book, by making him the main character, a hero dragon who is serving God and desiring to be remade into His image.
My son save my life. I was a very damaged person. My father left us when I was a baby and gave my sister and I up for adoption. This caused me to seek male leadership in all the wrong ways. At the age of 16 my virtue was taken by force by a friend. My father not wanting to be our father, and then this friend wanting my virtue, but not wanting me, became the pattern of my life. After many very bad relationships, I met and married Alex's father and a few years later Alex was born. My life, at this time was very career focused, but when he was placed in my arms that first time my life changed forever. I experienced love for the first time. In that instant, I knew he would never stop loving me. This was Christ's love. This was God showing me His love for me, and my son was the instrument God used.
