Child Abuse and Neglect

Posted by Karen Hessen on Thursday, September 1, 2011 Under: adoption, child abuse
I received official word this week that the story I submitted to Chicken Soup for the Soul about my son Kurtis' years of hunger has been selected for their upcoming book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Food and Love. This story tells of how Kurtis had a ravenous appetite when we adopted him because he had frequently gone without food in his young life. I titled the story, "The Way to a Boy's Stomach is Through His Heart." In the wisdom of the folks at Chicken Soup, the story has been retitiled, "Feeding the Heart." Too bad I didn't think of that first! They also picked a lovely quote by Mother Theresa to preceed the story. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Food and Love should be available in bookstores around Thanksgiving.

I also, this past week, received author copies of God Makes Lemonade. This new anthology contains a dirty little love story I wrote a couple of years ago, "A Match made in Mud." (Dirty only in the muddy sense.) This is the first volume of God Makes Lemonade and it looks and reads great. It is available now at Amazon.com and your local bookstores.

I will be speaking tomorrow night on forgiveness. When we adopted Kurtis, a child with a history of abuse and all the disabilities and ramifications that go along with that label, we knew the biggest of all disabilities for him would be hatred and anger. My presentation will focus on God's expectation that we forgive others and how God brought that about in my life as Kurtis' mom. Check my schedule page for details.
