The book will offer hope and a kindred heart to youth in care. It will be a great tool for professionals who work with youth in care to share as an example of overcoming obstacles and telling one's story to move onward and upward on the journey.
Take a few days to read the book.
If you have adolescents, have them read the book- it is a look into the world of foster care and youth who don't have support systems in place.
It is real and uplifting!
There is so much that we can all do when we pull together to touch lives of others and Steve touches upon this over and over in his book.
