What becomes of a childhood built upon repeated rejection? How can that child ever believe that someday, someone will want and love him? How can he live his life as a purposeful adult?
FOSTERING HOPE is a riveting true story about the pain of rejection, the power of a child’s untapped potential, and the passion in purposeful living. Born to a teenage mother whose heroin addiction shattered the hopes and dreams of her family, renowned author, lecturer, and national child advocate Shane Salter was thrust into the role of parent to his infant brother at the tender age of four. In FOSTERING HOPE, he shares his story and his strategies for moving beyond resentment to forgiveness and hope.
Salter’s harrowing journey affirms the possibility of reclaiming the power that the past has over us. It is not too late to reestablish relationships and rebuild once-burned bridges toward dreams deferred. As we learn to better understand ourselves and the hidden prison that confines us, we learn to transform hopelessness to hope. Salter’s memoir truly makes hope real.
