I originally read this book when I decided I wanted to go into social work and dealing in the arena of adoption. This book is an excellent read for anyone thinking about going into this type of field as it gives you a true insider look. Granted, it is an account from years ago, but it gives you a great feel for the frustrations and the rewards of doing this line of work.

Excellent memoir of the first few years of working in child welfare. A definite recommend for anyone working in the social work field or having a general interest.
