"It's Heart Work: Being The Village 
That Raises A Child"

Is a memoir in which "Ms. Evelyn" shares the joys and pains of counseling, mentoring, parenting, and caring for youth impacted by the circumstances of separation from their biological parents.  Her experiences and insights will provide a different perspective and understanding of the mind and "heart set" that underlies the sense of indifference, resistance, anger, and/or rejection they may experience from the children/youth they are reaching out to.  

She, and some of the youth (now adults) she's worked with, share some of the ways in which she was able to make heart connections which helped them to embrace and channel their pain into dreams; as well as the struggles she endured in loving the sons she brought into her heart and her home.

Readers will be able to identify, validate, and learn how to take care of their own emotions and well-being, and not lose their minds or selves in the process of trying to "be the village" that raises a child and loves them through.
