He confesses his many drug-related crimes and provides the reader with a deep look inside "the hood." He includes a "suicide note," many letters to and from the ACLU as well as poems and a rap he wrote at the height of his struggle. He had to write this book to save himself, as well as hope to have an impact on helping to save children and future families from a similar disaster.
He details the destruction of his own daughter, who was also suicidal. Moreover, he provides a unique perspective because he has taught many psychologically damaged children in the class setting who had also been removed from their home. It is important for people to read this, or the only side they will ever hear is from the Department of Social Services. Without this book, the victims would never have a voice; he shares many true stories from people who went through the same tragedy.
Also, this book serves a much higher purpose to help persuade people to end the law that gets children taken from their parents for just having a positive drug screen. He goes into detail of the damage it causes to both the children (the most) and their families.
The author also holds a Master's Degree in Education and was an elementary school teacher for many years. He is currently drug-free and is working toward becoming a career bartender.
