The book Oops! Wrong Family was awesome!! I read this book extremely fast! The only reason I rated this a 4 was because the way her mother treated her made me feel disgusted and I felt sorry for her. But anyway it's a good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Dr. Debi Toporoff tells a disturbing story of a childhood of parental abuse. It is her desire to help other victims, and survivors experience wholeness. Debi¿s is a story of redemption and recovery. It is story of survival, of working through the pain and suffering of physical abuse. She tells of a father¿s neglect, and a mother¿s irrational behavior. Debi graphically relates alarming stories of her mother¿s tirades and the consequence of the beatings that followed. She describes the feelings of mistrust, insecurity, worthlessness, inadequacy and the pain of loneliness. Debi¿s early life and personal dysfunction was the result of the effects of abuse, parental rejection, the damage of being berated, the emotional scars of continuous isolation, and of the failure of her parents as caregivers to provide needed food and clothing. Along the way several foster families, caring teachers, and co-workers helped Debi learn to trust, to reach out in love, and to understand the message of Jesus, his forgiveness, unconditional love, and hope. This is a story of rejection, redemption, and renewal. Today abuse is being accepted as a major social problem, and is recognized as the cause of scores of people¿s suffering and the personal problems they encounter. Authorities are now facing up to the prevalence and significance of child abuse, physical, sexual, and emotional, and of the potential long term psychological and mental behavioral issues that stem from these abusive experiences. It is Debi¿s concern that through the telling of her personal story the hurt of those dealing with the memory and pain of abuse will be eased. It is also her prayer that the book will minister to those looking to understand what children suffering from abuse have experienced. ¿Oops! Wrong Family¿ is disturbing, haunting, and memorable. The book is a testimony of survival and of emotional pain healed through God¿s redemptive love and salvation. It communicates an important message, and is a rewarding read. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
