My Sister, My Friend…

I was inspired to write this motivational book, My Sister, My Friend, to encourage those whose children have been removed by the state, to encourage parents and families not to lose hope in the midst of a difficult situation, to do what is needed to keep their children out of the system. Once children are in the system, it can be challenging to get them out. Working in crisis intervention for many years, I saw the pain and fear of parents not knowing where their children were or how they were doing. It made me think about what my sister must have been going through, crying and wondering where her children were and what was happening to them. It must have been difficult to miss each birthday and not have the opportunity to see her children grow. As any mother would, I know Bobbie must have been hoping and praying she would be reunited with her children one day. She is a testament to the power of prayer. My prayer is that the readers will get a real feel of what a mother must endure mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. I encourage parents whose children are in state custody not to give up on being reunified with their children
