About the Book

S. R. Daniel was always ambitious. She started her own gymnastics business at the age of fifteen. Directly after high school, she married her sweetheart, William, and not only continued with her business but also continued her education. Still, there was something missing. Remembering the joy of her own childhood, Sharon knew she wanted kids. At the time, Sharon and William were very young and had limited financial resources. They were not deterred. Despite the odds, they adopted their first two sons. Their family eventually continued to grow as the happy couple added two African American kids, one biracial daughter, and three more, totaling eight adopted children under one roof. In the United States, there are over 690,000 children in custody who are eligible for adoption. The path isn’t always easy. Sharon encountered difficulties with the system and foster care and faced trauma of her own. Yet she carried on and now she shares one family’s story of life, love, and tragedy, and the incredibly unique adoption stories of eight amazing kids.
