The First Wrinkle: The Effects of Childhood Trauma and an Honest Look Inside the Foster Care System Wendy L. Samford
Using brain research on the effects of childhood trauma, we know our brains cannot create lasting memories without attaching to old ones. In other words, “The First Wrinkle” in our memory is permanent. This book presents the authentic stories of four people who, in different states, experienced some form of childhood trauma. Alternating with the four memoir’s, are additional interviews showcasing those trying to better the system, including foster parents, first responders, and volunteers. The First Wrinkle is a tribute to the brave men and women who, from all over the country, have volunteered to share their stories. Read this book about needed change in our foster care system with your eyes wide open and without judgement. Find a way to be a part of the change in this hidden epidemic we call abuse.
