I've written a book.
I'm in the process of finding an agent.
This is my WIP (Work In Progress) blurb:
Reciprocal love between a parent and child should be a given; for a child with Reactive Attachment Disorder, it's not. In my book CHILDREN OF MY OWN: BRINGING BORYA HOME, I explore the struggles of raising and loving a child who does not, can not, love back.
This 80,000 word memoir about raising my adopted teen son Borya is complete and currently being queried.
