Hope's Boy by Andrew Bridge

I'm getting ready to tape an interview tomorrow with Andrew Bridge. Andrew's book, "Hope's Boy" is his memoir about growing up in the foster care system of Los Angeles. It's a New York Times Bestseller, a Publisher's Weekly bestseller as well as garnering many other distinctions....

Hope’s Boy captures an unprecedented child’s perspective into the world of foster care…a personal and penetrating description of the deep wounds children suffer when placed in the cold and unnatural world of foster care.— Amy Pellman, Commissioner, Los Angeles Superior Court

Andrew begins chapter one with this stunning sentence:

My earliest memory of my mother is her absence.

I'll be talking with Andrew about Hope's Boy along with Megan, who works locally in foster care. Keep posted for more information on when you can hear this interview.
