�This is a remarkable account of persevering in a world filled with indescribable challenges. It incites each reader to confront the issues impacting our children on a daily basis. I never would have guessed life dealt Toni so many opportunities to give up. This book is a must-read for anyone serious about protecting children.�

This was truly a remarkable book to read. I applaud Ms. Carter for what she overcame and made of herself. She could have given up when she was 15 but kept on and made something of her life and her children's lives. She never gave up and that speaks volumes for the kind of woman she was and is today. I can only hope to be the kind of woman she is.
