From the Foreword by Nyleen Shaw, foster care survivor and advocate
When I met Dr. Sue, she helped me change and turn my whole thought process around on the fact that I could not only have goals but actually accomplish them. I thought I could never accomplish a goal because I was a foster child and we had stereotypes placed on us that we would just be a statistic of the system. No one before Dr. Sue ever validated my feelings.
