really liked it

Ashley and her younger brother Luke are taken from their mother at a young age and placed into foster homes.
Soon Ashley learns she cannot trust the adults in her life and her life is very topsy turvy. Some foster homes she is with her brother, others she is not. They never know from one day to the next where they will be or where they will sleep.
Ashley gives a real life account of the pain and sorrow of foster care and the injustices in the system.
Ashely eventually ends up at a The children's home. It is more stable and a cleaner enviroment. They have programs for the children and adoption days. Eventually she is placed with a family that wishes to adopt her. She does not trust them, and keeps waiting for the other shoe to fall so to speak.
As time goes on, she realizes she can trust them and even love.
She is able to testify against some of the foster people that were very abusive.
She was asked to speak at various functions, the Dave Thomas adoptive functions and even went to the white house.
I amazing account of a sad young girl that has rose above her terrible circumstances..
