Eyes Wide Open: An Educational Resource About Foster Care & the People We Met Along the Way Who Changed Us
a novel by Charonne Ganiere (OneHope27)
Memoir - Nonfiction - Family - Adoption & Fostering
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This story is an account about engaging in foster care: how it opened our eyes, our hearts, and changed the way we live our life. We entered foster care in ignorance of a complex system full of people who live and hurt differently than we do. The more time my family and I spent involved with foster care, the more people we met who opened our eyes to the hurt around us. This is a narrative of our journey in foster care, an educational resource, but even more a story of how we learned to see others - how we learned to love.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
OneHope27 began in 2013 with a small group of foster parents and professionals, led by Kevin and Charonne Ganiere, who wanted to see the local church more involved in foster care. In 2014, they received their 501(c)(3) non-profit status, and in 2015, they became members of The Christian Alliance for Orphans. Their mission is to bring hope to kids and families involved in foster care and hope that, with this book, they have put together an educational resource for many about the realities of foster care, those involved, and the impact we all can make.
