Praise

"Beautifully written and urgently important, this book is a must read for parents everywhere."
–Dave Pelzer

"An amazing book, warm and inspiring. You finish it not warned off by the Miniters’ experience, but wanting to emulate it."
The Washington Post

"Candid and remarkably hopeful."
Kirkus Reviews

"A primer for anyone who might want to be a foster parent, especially for a special-needs kid. It does not pull any punches but does pull on your heartstrings."
Albuquerque Journal

"If just one family reads this book and decides they would be willing to try with a child like Mike, it could literally save a child’s life. This is an incredible story of amazing people."
–Marian Wright Edelman, President, The Children’s Defense Fund

"Here is an unpretentious and unsentimental, wonderfully engaging account of American idealism as it was lived out, day by day, in a particular family–a story of what is possible when an aroused parental loving-kindness takes on a child’s legacy of disorder and early sorrow."
–Dr. Robert Coles, Harvard Health Services, author of The Spiritual Life of Children


"An amazing book, warm and inspiring. You finish it not warned off by the Miniters’ experience, but want-ing to emulate it."–The Washington Post –>
