This story of my life shows that I was given an opportunity to exceed in many aspects of sports and life achievements but I choose to live a different lifestyle. I’m not nor never was the kiss ass, whiney, suck up, scared type but I do portray a person with many great qualities. I’ve always been the type of person that would do anything for anyone and during these times I didn’t care what happened to me; I’d rather be hurt than see someone else hurt. I can’t explain why I am the way I am or why I feel the way I feel but that’s the way God made me and I’m sure he did for a reason. “Everyone goes through changes at one point of another; make sure you change for the better and not the worse.”
This is Dave Pelzer's long-awaited sequel to A Child Called "It". In The Lost Boy, he answers questions and reveals new adventures through the compelling story of his life as an adolescent. Now considered an F-Child (Foster Child), Dave is moved in and out of five different homes. He suffers shame and experiences resentment from those who feel that all foster kids are trouble and unworthy of being loved just because they are not part of a "real" family.
Tears, laughter, devastation and hope create the journey of this little lost boy who searches desperately for just one thing -- the love of a family.
In this diverse and vigorous mix of stories by newcomers and luminaries, writers offer their takes on what life might hold for us in the next few years. The resulting visions of war, oppression, and daily struggle are sometimes humorous, sometimes terrifying (and occasionally both), but always thought-provoking.
