About the Book

This is a mother’s story of her two daughters leaving home at young ages to pursue gymnastics dreams to be Olympians. The loneliness and longing to be with her daughters during their journey and the long separations were not easy to describe. Difficulties, indecisiveness, joy, pride, and sadness—they all played a role in that journey. Maybe they didn’t make it to the Olympics, but there were decisions, successes, and experiences that this mother wanted to share.

About the Author

As a mother of two daughters and six grandchildren, Terri Stober is a blessed woman. She is a retired high school educator and Human Relations Specialist, and now lives in Ventura, CA, in walking distance of the beach, so live is good. Retirement has allowed her the time to write her first book, hike, bike, volunteer at the Ventura Botanical Gardens and the San Buenaventura Mission, play bridge, and travel. She and her husband reared their two daughters in Northern California, Grass Valley where they found their passion for gymnastics. After the girls’ college graduations, Ms. Strober worked and lived internationally for five years in Egypt and Paris, went to Seattle, WA, for 11 years, and finally returned to her home state, California in 2013. Her heart is rooted in family, faith, and love of life.
