Default Chosen Children: Absolutely stunning a must read for every one...

Chosen Children

Billion Dollar Babies in America's Foster Care,Adoption& Prison Systems


Chosen Children is in 3 parts - Part I: The Problems--identifies the
issues and follows the dollars to identify special interests; Part II:
The Alternatives--identifies programs that work; Part III: The Chosen
Children--identifies the victims and includes true case histories and
in-depth stories of hundreds of incarcerated adoptees to reveal what
makes their crimes unique...(the "why").

"True crime" books sensationalize the crime (the "what"), while Chosen
Children provides the stories behind the stories (the "why"). The
author, who has visited prisons, found an overrepresentation of adoptees
among the 2-million who are incarcerated nationwide. She has researched
hundreds of these adoptees from interviews, records, and correspondence
and reunited many of them with their families. The book gives them a
face and a voice for the first time, to show how the Foster Care and
Adoption industries fuels the Prison industry and vice-versa.

The number of case histories in Chosen Children is the largest ever
compiled in one book, and they are supported by excerpted newsclips,
extensive data with sources and in-depth first-person narratives by
incarcerated adoptees, including Michael Getty, Tom McGee, Greg Mox,
Kevin Smith, Noah Stone, Harold Williams, Jeremy Strohmeyer, to name
just a few. They are thieves, drug addicts, murderers, gang members, sex
offenders--all linked by their adoption-related behaviors and broken
birth bonds....the "billion dollar babies" in America's foster care,
adoption and prison systems.
