"Sunshine, you're my baby and I'm your only mother. You must mind the one taking care of you, but she's not your mama." Ashley Rhodes-Courter spent nine years of her life in fourteen different foster homes, living by those words. As her mother spirals out of control, Ashley is left clinging to an unpredictable, dissolving relationship, all the while getting pulled deeper and deeper into the foster care system.

Painful memories of being taken away from her home quickly become consumed by real-life horrors, where Ashley is juggled between caseworkers, shuffled from school to school, and forced to endure manipulative,humiliating treatment from a very abusive foster family. In this inspiring, unforgettable memoir, Ashley finds the courage to succeed - and in doing so, discovers the power of her own voice.

  • eye opening

    Eye opening story as to the happenings while in foster care. This is good information for people who work or deal with those in the foster care system to know, so that the mistakes made to this young girl can be avoided for others.

  • Three Little Words

    I work alongside the Foster Care System - this is an excellent book on the realities of what can happen with a broken system. One must be aware that all foster care experiences are not like this. This woman is a very extra ordinary person.
