Editorial Reviews

http://www.wtfu2.org - Steve Monaco
“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.”
http://www.wtfu2.org - Cynthia Dickens
“We all have a story to tell, and Toni reveals how she overcame abandonment, sexual molestation, anger, and bitterness to become the strong wife, mother, and professional she is today.”
http://www.wtfu2.org - Tyronne Stoudemire
“When Trouble Finds You creates awareness around crucial moments impacting the lives of abused children, their current and future relationships, and our world. I promise it will change the way you see the world and encourage you to build stronger relationships with children. They need us!”

    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.
