Three Little Words The Heartbreaking True Story of an Abandoned Little Girl Synopsis

'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.
