My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First let me say Thank you to the wonderful and amazing author Ellen for giving me this ARC of her book. In exchange for my honest opinion, this readers is my opinion of her great book/story. I had won a copy of this amazing book as a first read.
The writer takes us on a close up view of what it means to be a foster parent, What not only does the parent go through, But also what their family does too,
MS. Ellen has described several children in this book, There daily lives, mental conditions, home living environment. What happens when an abused child comes into your home. You never know the true story and how much abuse that child has gone through. What makes a parent?? A loving , caring, dependable person, One that will structure to the child. But what happens when you can't reach that child, Should you just give up on him or she?? This story "Through Hell and out the other side" is not just one story -but several stories.
This is a book that all parents need to read. Our children, are our most treasured beings. They all deserve to be loved, cared for, and not abused.
The way each child is described and the torment that they had gone through. Is done with such loving respect for that person.
Ms Ellen, words alone are not enough to say "Thank You" for being there for each of these young people. And "Thank you for allowing me to read your story. I have learned a lot from this book.
I recommend it to all adults, teachers, and who ever else is working the foster parent or child. We have a responsibility to our children,
NOW MY ADVICE TO ALL IS GO GET THIS BOOK AND READ IT FOR YOURSELF!!
You will not be disappointed that you did.I give this book a 20 star out of 5 stars.
