This book is a work of fiction. I am the biological mother of Adam. Adam was never removed from my care. Adam was asked to leave my house when he was 18 or 19 because of his drug and alcohol abuse. This was after 3 hospitalizations and an untold number of tears. When Adam moved in with a family in Detroit he was 18 or 19 years old not 8 or 9 as he stated. Adam was born in a very small town in Michigan not Detroit. At 8 or 9 years old we lived in California and Adam was a Cub Scout and involved with youth soccer. I was a Den Mother and District Commissioner for Boy Scouts. I also was very involved with PTA serving as Vice-President for 2 years. The Adam chapter is all lies and I am very angry and hurt that facts weren't checked out.
