Ashley Rhodes-Courter has been featured in Glamour,The New York Times and other publications as a role model for young women. Her memoir began as an essay which won a writing contest and was published in New York Times Magazine. In 2010 she married her high-school sweetheart. Together they've fostered sixteen children under the age of five and are now the proud parents of their own biological son.
'I am trapped centre stage in the spotlight. Do I have a choice? I stare straight ahead, shrug my shoulders and mumble, I guess so. In three words, it is done...Some people can be trusted.' Ashley Rhodes was taken from her mother when she was just three years old. She was left angry and clinging to an unpredictable, dissolving relationship with her family. But the painful memories of being taken away from her home quickly became consumed by real-life horrors. Ashley was forced to endure manipulative, humiliating treatment from an abusive foster family and spent nine years of her young life moving from home to home. Then she met the loving Courter family. In this inspiring and unforgettable memoir, Ashley finds the courage to accept her past and utter three words that will change her life forever.
