The story, in three parts, of a little girl's life from infancy to adulthood, beginning with drug addicted parents to foster homes to a failed adoption and the unfolding of her life.
On a brisk, January evening, she entered my life, a tiny, little thing with hair of corn silk, still reeling from a failed adoption.
At the age of six, living in New York, she was the third of six children born to a woman who had allowed drugs and alcohol to rule her life. One day, during her first year of school, authorities came to her school and took her away. She never saw her mother or siblings again.
Audrey's memories of her first six years were clouded at best. She remembered living in motels with her mother, her older sister, and a baby brother. The child spent her days working as a decoy while her mother stole merchandise from stores and her nights traveling from bar to bar with her mother, selling the stolen items.
