This review is from: Raising Abel (Kindle Edition)
This book drew me in from the prologue. Haunting, yet uplifting this book shows the real trauma that happens when children are abused at an early age and the strength, determination and love it takes to help them through it. Carolyn Nash might not feel like a hero but she is one to me. Many people might have given up on Abel but she never did. She showed him what unconditional love really is.
This book is written in short episodes, which highlight dramatic events throughout Abel's childhood and Carolyn's own self discovery journey in therapy. If you are a foster parent, or thinking of becoming a foster parent this might be a good read. Its honest and maybe a bit scary but shows that you can get through it and what a huge difference you can make in the life of a child. This is a book that will stay with me for quite a while.
