This book was a great find for me! I have always been very interested in stories about foster children and was a former lisenced foster parent myself. When I started reading Orphans of the Living, I wasn't too sure about it because it seemed a little wordy and acedemic. I am so glad though that I chose to continue on! I loved how this book followed the stories of many dfferent children. Orphans of the Living gave such a wide prosepective on the lives of children without parents . Must read this book if you are involved or working with children in the foster care system. Touching and horrifying at the same time.

In fact, it would be difficult to find a more depressing subject than the current state of foster care in the United States.
