This book relates some of our experiences during 30 years as foster parents. The reality of what these children endured before and after placement in the foster care system is heartbreaking. After all these years, my husband Ron and I cling stubbornly to our belief that time and man can change, but God and truth will not. My goal is to inform the public, about the foster care system. I hope to sound the alarm loud and clear, that the current foster care system is not working. I want to bring attention to the powerless children, within the system, being tossed about in the waves of loophole laws, uninformed policy makers, non-committed decision-makers, and non-motivated and often disinterested birth parents. Court mandated and enforced accountability must take place at all levels involved!

Claudia was born in the late 30s and raised in a small mid-western town. Her family was large, poor, hard working, and close knit. She married Ron in 1957, but due to an incompatible Rh factor, only two of their five babies survived. In 1969, their first foster child arrived. Their family lived the motto; There is always room for one more. They welcomed with open arms, special needs children. Claudia states, As a child, I was often treated as an underdog by society; thus, developed an advocacy for anyone who needed a lift. I was quite young, when I became aware, that God lifted me. Claudia and her husband live in Wisconsin and continue in their role as foster parents. She is writing her second book.
