Danielle Tudor

This book is for the people who live high and don't know what life could bring when brought into a different family. Children are Gods gift to their parents and many times they abuse that gift that is not meant to be abused. So all of you abuseive parents stop beating your children they deserve to live with love, NOT hatered and cruelity.

I just loved this book I thoughth about it would be like to be in his position and I couldn't do it so I give Dave Props on his job well done on beating his MOTHER at her own games good job dawg!

The book that I really like very much is (A CHILD CALLED "IT") .. It's a sad story that my heart was broken because of it .. I felt that I was living with him at that period ..
Good Luck ..
Enjoy your life :)
