Each year, nearly 500,000 children are forcibly taken from their homes and placed in foster care with strangers. Once they come of age, the majority of them struggle with drug use, homeless, mental health problems, and incarceration.
But one woman beat all the odds. Published by Dr. Marita Kinney, Atlanta-based Pure Thoughts Publishing, LLC, “Verses,” chronicles the remarkable life of Dr. Sharrica Miller, who spent 12 years of her childhood in foster care as a child of a heroin addicted mother and a drug dealing father before emerging as a nationally renowned speaker, advocate, and foster care researcher.
Part memoir, part self-help, “Verses: Life Lessons From Foster Care” is set for an October 2022 release. In this book, Dr. Miller tells stories from her childhood and shares meaningful life lessons that can be applied to anyone experiencing adversity.
Speaking about her early life challenges, Dr. Sharrica Miller says, “The first years of my life were chaotic and filled with instability. Foster care didn’t seem to care for me and my parents were too steeped into drug life to keep us in one place.
“However, amid all these struggles, I found something inside of me – resilience, perseverance, and persistence. I hope to use my story to inspire others to reach their true potential despite their life circumstances. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and all you need to do is just keep going!”
