This is the story of a woman, who as a young child suffered the loss of her father and then suffered through an abusive childhood. After marrying, very young, and raising four children of own, she became aware of the abused and neglected children in the Department of Family Services that did not have homes or families to take care of them. She decided to become involved in helping theses children. With strong determination and courage she put aside her own needs, interests, and desires and began to foster children. Through the years she went on to adopt ten of these children.
This was not an easy road to follow as her being a strong advocate for these children led to much tribulation with the Department of Family Services. The effect on her own family was damaging as well as costly for her.
