Summary, etc.: Imagine a young boy who has never had a loving home. His only possesions are the old, torn clothes he carries in a paper bag. The only world he knows is one of isolation and fear. Although others had rescued this boy from his abusive alcoholic mother, his real hurt is just beginning -- he has no place to call home. This is Dave Pelzer's long-awaited sequel to A Child Called "It." In this book, he answers questions & 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. You will not be able to put down this harrowing but ultimately uplifting true story of a boy's journey through the foster-care system, in search of a family to love. A retired Air Force air crew member, Dave played a major role in Operations Just Cause, Desert Shield & Desert Storm. Dave was selected for the unique task of midair refueling of the then highly secretive SR-71 Blackbird & F-117 Stealth Fighter. While serving in the Air Force, Dave worked in juvenile hall & other programs involving "youth at risk" throughout California. His unique accomplishments have garnered commendations from Presidents Reagan, Bush & Clinton. In 1994 he was the only American who received the Outstanding Young Persons of the World Award.--Annotation.
