From the Author
It is the author's intention that ALL royalties received from his book and gift shop on this site will go to charity. It is my hope at some future date it will allow me to reach one of my dreams. The dream is to set up a foundation for children who have survived the "foster care system." It is hoped that through the foundation I will be able to help other "throw away kids" have one or more of the opportunities in life that I have been blessed with. Therefore, I will receive no financial enrichment from this book or gifts purchsed. My enrichment will come from knowing, in some small way, I brightened someone else's life.
I further hope that by the sharing of my story others, who may have or will travel similar roads may know that it is possible to make it to the end of the road no matter how many twists, curves, or turns you may confront along the way. It is the hope of this author that in this book you will find hope, comfort, warmth, and most importantly...HEALING!
