This book is about a child who was given away by his mother at the tender age of three months old. It's a recounting of the turbulence of living without a mother or a father, and of the struggles, adversities, and hardships that followed him into his adult life. This memoir will allow the reader to realize that life is simply not about the struggle and the abuse he or she may encounter, but it is more about the courage and the ability to never give up. This is my story. I am addicted to it, and now it is time to let it go. For I declare, "I am an appointment, not an accident "
