Survival of the Fittest...One Child's Life in the Foster Care System (Book) - 5/25/2010 3:36:23 AM|
This is a book I definetly have to read, sounds very intresting. I came from an abusive background also, only I was not able to get into foster care which I believed would have been much better for me.
Foster homes then in that time frame weren't so ready available, we had more reform schools. When I was older I became a foster parent for 19 years. I wrote a book on my journey also, it is called The Story Never Told. I can't wait to read your story. thank You for sharing.

For just a minute, imagine the iron branding of human flesh. The putrid smell of skin burning follows the grotesque exposure of tendons and veins. Soon, the wounds heal, the scars fade, and the physical pain vanishes. But, what if this happened to the same person, over and over again, just in different spots on their body? Would you dare to look at the disfigurement?
“Foster Care People” depicts the invisible iron branding of the human soul. Written from a child’s point of view, the book starts quite innocently. We witness a happy family, two parents with a son and a daughter. Even the best of homes expect a few trials now and then. Yet the events surrounding a kitchen fire smolder the lives of each family member for the next several years. Lenora Williams, the daughter and main character, attempts to warn us of the impending danger. That’s because the red-hot irons of abuse try to sear into your consciousness, which could burn the bridges to your spirit, and leave you numb for a while. I prayed the story only came from the author’s vivid imagination.
Lauretta Ali’s descriptions through the eyes of a child are riveting. Through Lenora, she calmly reminds us that children are people too, not punching bags or sex toys. I felt as if I stood in a corner of the bedroom with my arms bound, and my mouth taped shut, while the second foster father visited her at night. Although the skin quickly conceals the outer evidence, time creeps to erase the psychological effects. I recommend “Foster Care People” to anyone who raises a child, whether for a day, two years or a lifetime.

Decade extensions of a new world order of a culture. The sins of the family tree that is implemented through birth. The psychological lynching continue through the neglect of a people who feels, if it dose not effect me, than it is not my problem. Social Workers who do not no how to be social. The curse that plagues a nation of people through there genes. No protection from the system who sings abuse for the world to see. Genocide within our own right hands. Leaders who don’t know how to lead. Such a sad and embarrassment for mothers who wear the symbols of read black and green. Slavery within the back doors of a master who hides behind the system, and a people who just don’t give a dam. Walking zombies who refuse to protect the children that they bring in the world. Is it the protectors? are is it the people who allows the system to destroy the babies without a fight are feeling of human order in a world which is blind to only there needs.
A house divided shall never stand. It will begin to smell like rotten death.
Eyes that close to the needs of our children. Prison disused as human kindness, a death chamber of disgrace. Continue to write allow the people to no , that suicide is abomination to God when one kills self. I really like this synopsis.
