"Trying to Keep Moving Forward" is the real life success story of Al Bailey, who made it from troubled foster child to Social Services board member and charity CEO. When his loving mother gave him up into foster care as a young child, Al was passed from home to home, making bad choices along the way, and even ending up homeless. Despite the toughest of beginnings, Al managed to turn his life around, working his way up to Executive Director of his own non-profit organization. But even here the road did not run smooth, as one bad decision cost Al more than he had ever bargained for. After a period of introspection, he serves the community again as a motivational consultant.
In his first book, "Trying to keep moving forward", Al Bailey shows that as long as you keep on trying, your dreams really can come true. So easily he could have taken the wrong path, ended up dead, in prison for a long period of time or even totally dependent on the public systems, but today Al makes the choice every day to move forward on the inspirational journey to success, and wants to share his success and failures with others.
