    Download Etched in Sand 109 Etched in SandI don't know where to start this review other than to say this isn't a book for the faint of heart As a parent myself there were parts of this book that were really hard for me to digest because I don't know how a person could care so little for their child let alone five children I really struggled through parts of this book because you want to think that things can't get any worse but you know that they will and they do And it really just affirms my personal belief that you shouldn't be allowed to just have kids It's been proven that just because you can doesn't mean you should The story is basically the story of Regina and her siblings who have a mother who isn't just neglectful but she's also abusive in her moments of actually being there and these five kids are forced to become mini adults almost immediately Whether it's trying to make every stop a home searching for loose chang

    Download Etched in Sand 109 Etched in Sand45 stars but A BIG PROBLEMGreat memoir Bravely written and a wonderful example of internal and personal perseverance HOWEVER it's important to point out a major disconnect in the author's perceptions I was taken aback at her contempt of the overworked underfunded social service system Her utter stoicism and total unappreciative nature for her foster parents is disheartening I work for an agency called the Child Placement Review Board CPRB Our job is to make recommendations to the courts for the best interest of the child in uestion and to make sure that social services is doing their job In other words we oversee social services If they're not doing their jobs I know about it My feelings as an educator parent and a long time committee member of the CPRB is that you are damned if you do and damned if you don't The book has changed my perception of how I and my colleagues
