For one seven-year old bi-racial boy, it led to being torn from the home he loved and sent to a "colored orphanage", where he was told he was "in denial of being a Negro". This is my story.
It is a gripping story that depicts my thirteen- year soical and emotional adjustment to insitutional childcare, post transitional and survival.
It will inspire and motivate discussions for abandonment.
