About Us

Scared Heart

The mixture of tears and sweat blurred my vision, and I could hardly move. I turned to exit, envisioning what would have been the door out of our kitchen. Focusing, frozen in my tracks, I stood motionless, my heart not believing my eyes. My body collapsed and I fell to my knees, sinking into the hot, rich dirt as the rain of tears continued to fall. As if from heaven, there it was, lying before me on a mound of fresh dirt, seemingly placed there just moments before. I reached down, my fingers shaking as the tips penetrated the soil, scooping it up. 

Portrait

Enfield, North Carolina isn’t a large spot on the map, but for a young Larry Perkins, it was his whole world. Born to a sharecropper father and a mother who dreamed of bigger things, Larry’s childhood was tumultuous. In early child hood, his mother abandoned him and left to New York City to chase her dreams. Larry spent the first 9 years of his life bouncing from family member to family member before landing in his father and stepmother’s home. His father soon enslaved him, forcing him to work his life away on his father’s farm. The rules and demands of sharecropping life left little time for play, and work quickly overshadowed school. 

Who Are You?

 After the many years devoted to writing this book, I was both excited and scared at the same time. It's hard to reveal ones inner most trails and hardships of your life. 

Foster A Voice

 When I began the journey of writing this book, it was really for me and not to be shared. It wasn't until I was nearly finished that I decided to share it with the world, after discovering the healing power that it had for me and learning the unbelievable facts of so many foster, kinship and adopted children that I wanted to do my part to help. So we started nonprofit, FosterAVoice, which the proceeds will benefit.
