A Dream Deferred, a Joy Achieved

Stories of Struggle and Triumph

Edited by: Charisse Nesbit
A Dream Deferred, a Joy Achieved is a positive look at the foster care system through stories of its survivors who show there is hope for the future, even in a system often identified by abuse and neglect.

With a unique perspective, this collection of inspiring stories is a testament to the fighting spirit of former foster children, and an inspiration to others currently in the same situation to emerge from the system as successful productive members of society. The stories are true to life, sometimes painful, yet full of hope, revealing those who have graduated and gone on to make the most of their lives, in spite of their challenging beginnings.
The stories within A Dream Deferred, a Joy Achieved teach the important lesson that one should never give up, even if circumstances aren't the brightest and opportunity isn't immediately present. Those dreams will still be there in the future, and it is up to the foster children to make the best of their current situations.
