This is a story about a young child not only abused and battered but hated by his biological parents and his adopted father. As a result, he would turn away from his families, religion, and faith in God. He would grow to hate himself. He would grow up and push life to its limits and dance with the devil through alcohol, drugs, sex and suicide. It is about his search for his identity and purpose in life. Two things would keep him alive, one of them being the love of his older adopted sister. The child would go from being well to do financially to being poor, hungry, and homeless. He would face bankruptcy, mental illness, and poor health. He would see relationships come and go and three marriages end in divorce and the loss of custody of his children. His journey would take years to where he finally finds himself, returns to religion and finds his faith in God.
