Raising Wild Ginger
Parenting is hard. That's what Edward Rosenberg has always assumed, although his only experience with children has been as the drunken uncle. Now the love of his life, Sam DaCosta, is yearning for fatherhood. Edward's been sober for years. He and Sam are in a good place. Why rock the boat? On the other hand, how can he deny Sam his dream of a family?
Then they meet Ginger. At twelve she's been through more than either Edward or Sam can imagine. She's seductive, secretive and dishonest. But somewhere between stealing his cash and alienating Sam, Ginger manages to wind herself into Edward's heart. Can the three of them create a family? Or will Ginger blow them all apart?
This is one of those books that really changes how you view life. Poor little Ginger lived through absolute hell. And of course, she doesn’t know how to cope with what she has been through. So she did the typical kid thing and acted out. Of course, this led to difficult foster home placements.
Thankfully, she didn’t fall completely through the cracks. She was able to find a loving family who welcomed her and let her know that she is now safe and loved. Foster parenting is trying enough, but to take in a child that has emotional scars like she did is beyond.
I really recommend reading this book. It will definitely tug on your heart strings.
