Synopsis: Mitchell es un respetado asesor financiero y un defensor dedicado a los jóvenes, pero lo que no se conoce mucho es su tumultuosa niñez. Los escritos de sus memorias revelan su vida en el orfanato después de que su mama lo abandonó a los tres años y sus luchas para encontrar amor, aceptación mientras que aprendía a confiar. Él conocía a su desquiciada madre, quien una vez lo rapto del orfanato, pero no tenía ninguna memoria real de su padre, quien intentó suicidarse pero terminó con daños cerebrales. Su abuela materna era el ancla del niño, pero no podía criarlo, lo que solo añadía a su confusión. Él titubeaba sobre el abismo del desastre mientras maduraba, pero a los 17 años oró: «Jesús, si eres real, entra a mi pesadilla. Perdona mis pecados y cámbiame». La historia de Mitchell es inspiradora tanto en sus dimensiones espirituales como en su narrativa convencional al estilo Horatio Alger. Los hechos de su caso también se pueden comprobar, algo en lo que tanto Mitchell y su publicadora se esforzaron en asegurar a través del sitio en la web www.amillionlittleproofs.com, donde se ofrecen documentos en versión pdf del pasado de Mitchell. Los escritos de sus memorias apelarán a los adultos con pasados difíciles, a los que trabajan con niños con problemas y a cualquiera que se deleite en ver a Dios transformar una vida.

Product Description: Mitchell is a respected financial consultant and a dedicated youth advocate, but what's not well known is that he had a tumultuous childhood. His memoir reveals his life in an orphanage after his mother abandoned him at age 3, as well as his struggle to find love and acceptance while learning to trust. Mitchell knew his mentally ill mother, who once kidnapped him from the orphanage, but had no real memories of his father, who attempted suicide but ended up brain damaged. His maternal grandmother was the boy's anchor, but she couldn't raise him, which only added to his confusion. He teetered on the edge of disaster as he matured, but at age 17 he prayed, 'Jesus, if you are real, come into my nightmare. Forgive me of my sins and change me.' Mitchell's story is inspiring both for its spiritual dimension and its conventional Horatio Alger narrative. The facts of his case are also verifiably true, which Mitchell and the publisher take pains to ensure in part through the Web site www.amillionlittleproofs.com, which offers pdf versions of documents from Mitchell's past. His memoir will appeal to adults with difficult pasts, those who work with troubled kids and anyone who revels in seeing God change a life.
