Alden Huffman lived it, his brothers and sisters lived it. The story starts even before Alden was born. One sibling lived only seven months; there were broken bones, burns, and near-death incidents in the family. This is a story of a mother and father who were t. We say t in the context of those parents who will undermine their children's ability to survive, without trying. It is also a story of a government that does t understand. If you want children to grow up and be respectable citizens despite living in a household that's falling apart, step in and straighten it out. This is a story of survival as well. A young boy is taken from his home and sent to a children's home, which does t receive federal money and only depends on prayer. What was life in a children's home, and was progress made to restore the children's belief in life? This book will have psychologists, social workers, teachers, and those who work with children questioning their roles and conduct in dealing with children. Compassion and hope are needed to those coming from a broken-down home. You can help in the survival of as many as possible.
