Tammy and Arga were fighting like tiny Tasmanian devils. The only thing I could think to do was to scoop the pair of them up and carry them away from the rest of the children – who were not behaving much better that morning: the weekend seemed to have killed some of their ardour for the KB.

Enjoyed reading about the children and how Shane , his friend and all the workers made a difference in the life's of these children. I'm happy Shane included updates on the kids at the end of the book. Sorry to hear about Lonnie , glad Tush was there for him. And Tammy's update surprised me the most , I really thought she would go far once she began talking and is so gifted but who knows what tomorrows brings she can still do amazing things with her life if she so sets her mind to it. Thank you Shane for sharing your heartwarming story with us.

I am now hooked on Shane Dunphy books! This author is an amazing writer that pulled me in right away and kept me interested the entire way through. I love his way of making me feel like I could see and hear everything he was writing about. I am a parent of a special needs child and to know that there are special people out there willing to go the extra step and put themselves out there for the children who need them most is very heartwarming. Keeps my faith in people going. I'm very happy I downloaded this book and will continue to read anything he writes. I'm practically addicted to his writing. I almost missed my bus stop a few times because I just wanted to keep reading!

This shows how much love, patience, and caring can make a difference. The characters worked as a group and thought outside the box to work with the children. Would be great for people working with difficult situations and children, of all ages. I cried a few times and laughed a few times. I would read it again in a few years or sooner just to be reminded of how they thought out of the box and wanted to keep the children together to grow.

So sad to read how these special babies were treated but heart warming how there are amazing people out there that can change these special kids outlook on life and love.

Shane Dunphy delivers his stories in a forthright way and brings you into the life of his characters. I'm Australian and I know child neglect and abuse is going on in all developed countries but Ireland seems to harbour some extremely twisted souls perpetrating evil deeds through generations of innocents. I love the way Dunphy's writing takes his readers to Ireland, whether it be dingy drinking establishments in the city or villages dotted around the countryside with rolling greens hills. It makes me just want to hold these children and take away their pain.
I loved reading this book. I enjoyed the way it was written and was able to relate to the characters. I liked that there were no triggering issues for people who have been through similar situations as children.
