Continuous religious and political conflicts leave behind misery. We lost our parents and virtually every relative, but we gained brothers and sisters at the orphanage that took us in. Lying somewhere between the woeful Baudelaires in Lemony Snickets A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the legendary orphan-heroes of Dickens, this story depicts real events in the lives of real orphans. When I was five, my parents died leaving behind five young children. Through anything that came our way: death, war, hunger, misery, rejection, failure, and happiness, we were there for each other. Our unbreakable bond, support, and love for each other, but most importantly love of God grew stronger as we looked for the positive in each experience. Reading this book will no doubt help you find your inner strength and your compassion.
