Young man’s trials with mental disorder inspire his other to reveal a story of hope.

In her new book, A Son’s Gift, Betty Flowers recounts the difficulties she and her son, Matthew, faced while dealing with his attention deficit disorder (ADD). Though Matthew’s long-time troubles puzzled Flowers, understanding ADD helped mother and son daily combat and overcome it.

Parents dealing with ADD and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the 21st century will not only find encouragement and understanding in Flowers’ book, but they will also learn some interesting history about the ailments and sense a mother’s unwavering devotion to her child’s well-being.

Before discovering ADD was the cause of Matthew’s “bad” behavior, Flowers went through an endless series of parent-teacher meetings about her son. She thought it was strange that her only child, who behaved so well at home with her, would become disruptive and mischievous at school..

Though Matthew died tragically in a January 2003 auto accident at age 28, Flowers chooses to focus on how her son daily pushed beyond his ADD to lead as normal a life as possible -- one that included a wife, loving friends and family, and a job he enjoyed. Through Matthew’s ups and downs, Flowers wants parents of ADD/ADHD sufferers and children with the disorders to press toward their goals and fight for better mental health.
