really liked it

This book is hard to rate for me! Michael Anthony Hughes was my foster brother!! I named my first child after him! Seeing his story unfold in print was a difficult thing to read. I knew he had been through a lot and I knew a little about how he came to be a foster child but to read about the things that I didn't know was heartbreaking.

For years I would look into the eyes of little boys wondering if they could be my Michael. 15 years later I still think about him often and I hope he knows how much we all love him!!!!

Anne Hawn Smith I can't imagine how hard this was for your foster parents and for all of you who were raised with Michael. I feel terrible just reading about him.

Lost Mermaid My heart goes out to you. This tragedy has haunted me for years.
