CAN I READ AN EXERPT FROM THE BOOK?
Chapter 1: Tuning Out, Tuning In
I was four years old the last time I saw my birth mother. She came to the orphanage to visit her children – me, my little sister Mary, and our older brothers Bobby and Ricky. We had been taken away from her. I remember my birth mother as beautiful, breathy, and always in some kind of hurry. That last day, she wore a long coat with a red scarf and pretty, high-heeeled shoes. I don’t remember what we did during her visit, but I can never forget her leaving. (more)
