I have only ever worked a few shifts in Pediatrics, and that was when they were short staffed.
I never liked working with sick children.
Why?? You might ask?
Because many children suffer abuse, and I find that very hard to tolerate..
When this book, "A Child Called It." came to my attention, I, like many, were curious.
I bought it on Kindle, and read it. Or rather, I skipped through reading it....
It is very graphic, violent, specific and full of evil child abuse.
I also believe that some of it is fabricated to make a good story.
But beyond that, this child survived against impossible odds..
Why would a mother single out one of her children and treat him in such an inhuman way?
How could a father, turn a blind eye and not stop the cruelty?
There are many wonders of Why?
After reading/glossing over, the first book, I wanted to read the second one to see if David faired better in Forster care? I wanted to know what became of him and I wanted to know if his mother was justly punished?
David went on to become a special person...
One who not only overcame, but one who went on to achieve, and be honoured.
Many of us would be proud to have such a son as this..
Yet his mother never was.
All she ever wanted to do, was destroy him, in fact, she wanted to killed him.
She didn't go this far, because she was clever enough to know, she wouldn't get away with it.
I believe that God had a purpose for this boy to live.
In him was built a will to survive. In him was build a heart of courage.
And out of him has come encouragement to other abused children.
To Never Give Up, and Always Do Your Best.
Its not who you are born to be (unwanted). Its who you desire to be (a Star).

From Abuse To Conqueror
An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
