I highly recommend this quick read to anyone, but especially if you are looking for something to brighten your perspective, or if you are in the field of foster care, social services, or sociology.
She lets us see how the children struggle, how some are incapable of breaking the cycle of poverty, drugs and abuse. She shares the triumphs, the set-backs, and most importantly, the emotional effort it takes for these kids to become whole, successful and productive adults.
But best of all, Kimberly teaches us what our part needs to be to help these kids. Without judgement of those who caused her to stumble, she models and instructs us with patient perserverance. I laughed, I cried, but most of all, I longed to reach out and touch these children and show them the love every child deserves to have.
A must read for anyone dealing with Foster children or children in mentoring programs.
definitely buy it and help promote the cause the author creates for foster care children through her own personal experiences and heart-felt novel...
