    Deborah's insite to nuturing children is phenomenal. This book should be read by every parent!

    Deborah Gray's book has helped our family tremendously. Her experience and insight into the mind of the neglected/ abused child is remarkable. Our son is benefiting from her experience in so many ways and the techniques she provides for the parent, family and professional are right on target to helping these special children. I feel it is a must read for any family considering toddler/preschooler adoption or those who have just come home with a child. In fact, I would recommend all parents read this book- it can only help make us all better and help our society raise healthy minded children.
