Robert, Sandra, Nora and Brenda were happy, playful children until their mother left them. They were removed from their home and placed into separate foster homes, lost in the system and never to be a part of a real family again....
Told through the eyes of a seven-year-old child, you will experience a childs view of life at the loss of a mother, the breakup of a family and becoming a foster child.
This is the true life story of only one family, of just four children yet sadly it tells the story of thousands.
Excerpt
On Christmas morning, filled with anticipation, Robert and I ran down stairs, expecting to find something from Santa. Our living room was totally bare. There was no sign of Christmas, not a tree or a present in sight. My brother and I huddled together crying. What little hope we had seemed lost.

Reader Reviews for "Brown Paper Bags"

Reviewed by Lawrence Adams 10/27/2003
I grew up in the foster care system and am very familiar with the "paper bag"...I used it 14 times in 11 years. If only society would open their eyes to the failures of the system. I am happy to see others telling the story.
