Wow! As the father of two girls who I would give up my life for to save them from ever being hurt, it's hard to imagine what this lady went through as a child. The real heroes in this story are the foster parents, the judge and particularly the tough girl (now woman) who refused to let this stop her from having a successful life. Good luck to her!
What huge difference parents make.
The parents deserve so much credit, as does this woman. She could retreat in life and allow her experience to consume her, but she's a true survivor. For those who believe they're a victim because they live in poverty, etc., I encourage you to find a way to purchase her book. What she has to say carries far more weight with me than what any professional can write.
