Hello all,

 

I've written a book about raising my son, who had been severely traumatized before he came to me at age 3-1/2. I've heard from a large number of foster/adoptive parents that our story has really helped them, so I'm trying to get the word out to other parents.

 

RAISING ABEL was recently reviewed by Kirkus Reviews. If you have a minute, take a look.

This is the link to the book on Amazon.

RAISING ABEL is the story of 18 years raising a severely traumatized child. It's authored under my pen name, Carolyn Nash and can be found on Amazon.

I read the bit available online.  It had me in tears.  I want to read the rest and wish it was available for Nook.

Thank you for taking a look. I'm sorry it made you cry, but also glad that it moved you.

 

Did you know you can download free software from Amazon so that you can read any Kindle e-book on your computer or i-Pad or such? I did it before I owned a Kindle, and it works great.

 

In any case, I appreciate you taking the time to read the excerpt. It means a great deal to me when I hear that our story touched someone.
