This book is the story of a woman, who is confronted with the realization that in America today, children can be taken from their families and adopted out to strangers, when there are biological family ready and willing to take them and raise them. She also learns that these strangers are compensated financially until these children reach the age of majority and sometimes beyond. When this happens in her own family with the brother to the grandchild she is already raising, becomes known to the family and the child welfare system continues to try and hide this child from the family, she makes a decision to make sure this practice is stopped. She is successful in not only changing her state law in Maryland, but also instrumental in passing a federal law, which now mandates that all states must notify and give preference to biological family before adopting children out to strangers. This book is about her journey to make that change happen.
