Dani's Story: A Journey from Neglect to Love 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
akblanchard on LibraryThing 10 months ago
For her first eight years of life, Dani was severely neglected, so much so that she never learned to speak. Diane and Bernie Lierow adopted her, and as the subtitle says, took her on a "journey from neglect to love." It's a heartwarming story, adequately written (I think I would have preferred it had it not been from the point of view of the adoptive mother), not the best of its genre, but definitely worth reading.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading the story of Dani and how she progressed once she was adopted and loved. Highly recommend!
