Kris Newman I'm surprised this book isn't getting more attention. It's an excellent story - and it's true. I hope to meet Andrew Bridge someday. He is a true hero to foster kids in this country. I wish more foster parents - and potential foster parents - would read this book to see what it looks like from the inside out. Excellent book and well worth the price.

Mark Weaver Tough book for me, very sad book. Very good book.

Julia BEST book read in a while showing why we need CPS - educators and caregivers. But loved the show of a mother's love (as much as she was able) and the boy's view on neededing to be cared for by others! A MUST READ FOR ALL EDUCATORS!

Kris Newman Yes, a must read for educators and for those involved in the foster care system. It is the best book I have ever read showing what it is like from the inside out of foster care. It's not a tragedy book, but a real life look into the heart of a foster child. And this I tell you from my own experiences.
