A Couple Good Reads

I loved these books.

Jansen's Gift is a true story, about a woman who suddenly loses her son.   In her grief, she finds a greater purpose for life and ends up helping children around the world.

 Scared is fiction, based on the real life experiences of Tom Davis, President of Children's HopeChest, a Christian-based child advocacy organization helping orphans in Eastern Europe and Africa.

Both show the vulnerability of children and the reality of modern slavery
(often in the form of sex trafficking).  They will break your heart and give you hope.

And if you think you've got problems... you won't think so anymore.
