This chapter is a portrait of Wanda Kaczynski, mother of Theodore and David Kaczynski, from her humble beginnings in a Polish American immigrant family until her death in 2011 at the age of ninety-four. Included are descriptions of her meeting with the FBI in connection with the Unabomber case, her attendance at Theodore’s federal death penalty trial in Sacramento, California, and her encounter with murder victim family members in the aftermath of her son’s trial. The chapter describes how Wanda embraced and embodied motherhood despite extraordinary challenges arising from her child’s mental illness and his eventual arrest as a serial killer after being turned in to the FBI by his brother, David.
