Rob Mitchell is one of the last “lifers” raised in an American orphanage. Left by a dysfunctional family in an Illinois children's home, he grew up with kids who were not friends but rather “co-survivors.” After becoming a Christian as a teenager, Rob found what he was looking for, home and family, in a relationship with God. Rob was able to overcome his past, forgiving his relatives and forging healthy family relationships of his own.

Really enjoyed this book. The author's style was easy to read, it flowed well, and was both emotionally moving and uplifting. Found myself rooting for him and impressed with open way he conveyed his experiences and the ways his intellect, spirit, and lifelines helped him to survive and thrive. I only occasionally grab something away from my favorite genre's, but I'm glad I picked this one up.
