One Small Boat; The Story of a Little Girl, Lost then Found by Kathy Harrison

A memoir written by a Massachusetts foster parent since 1988. This is an intimate portrait of one of the hundreds of children who have been nurtured by Harrison and her husband as they struggle to provide short term, emergency foster care. Five year old Daisy is from a well to do family placed into foster care suffering with a speech impediment and eating disorder who gradually reveals a background of neglect and sexual abuse. Harrison shares her honest assessment of the foster care system as well as her emotions and limitations as a foster parent. She and her husband are good caring people who believe in the healing power of love. A riveting and personal account of foster parenting and the children whose lives are forever shaped by it. A story that leaves you wanting to go out and make a difference! -Aurora
