Cottage Country Reflections Book Review

This is the story of a hero’s journey—of dark and light, addiction and recovery, life and death and the afterlife. It is a story of sorrow and redemption, the bond between a mother and son, and the legacy of addiction that they heal together after her son crosses to the “other side.”

The Hero in Heroin is Mindy Miralia’s honest telling of her life as an international businesswoman who constantly strove to be the best parent possible despite her family’s constant uprooting from one part of the globe to another—moves that were demanded by work.

Journey for Truth with Tami Urbanek

I realized Micah was using drugs when he was a teenager. I tried to help him, but he progressed to heroin in his twenties.

I tried everything from western medicine to eastern medicine. He wanted help, he accepted help, but the call of heroin was overpowering. He eventually overdosed. Before his death, however, we were able to begin the book, The Hero In Heroin.

Listen to my interview on my experiences and what Micah’s spirit came back to tell her about his physical addiction.
