In a poverty-stricken neighbourhood wedged between the city and the sea, a father and son struggle to keep their heads above water. Rather than being discouraged by their difficulties and hardship, their response is to come up with increasingly bizarre and imaginative plans in order to get by. Even when a horrifying, macabre event rocks the neighborhood and the locals start to flee, father and son decide to stay put. What matters is staying together.This is a bold, poignant text that juxtaposes a very tender father-son relationship with the son's sexual liberation and a brutal depiction of homophobic violence. Giuseppe Caputo uses delicate – yet electrifying – lyricism and imagery to weave a tale that balances desire, violence, discrimination, love, eroticism and defiance, while evoking with surreal humor the social marginalization of the protagonists as they struggle to keep afloat in a society where there are no safety nets.Like a brightly-lit theme park with its house of horrors, reminiscent in parts of James Baldwin’s Another Country or Virginie Despentes’ Vernon Subutex trilogy, An Orphan World defies the reader to look away, and the reward is an exhilarating carnival ride filled with beauty, compassion and loss.

A heart-rending but uplifting story of the human spirit’s ability to prevail. From the day he is five-years-old and dropped off at his foster home of the next eleven years, Stephen is mentally and physically tortured. No one in the system can help him. No one can tell him if he has a family. No one can tell him why, with obvious African-American features, he has the last name of Klakowicz. Along the way, a single faint light comes only from a neighbor’s small acts of kindness and caring—and a box of books. From one of those books he learns that he has to fight in any way he can—for victory is in the battle. His victory is to excel in school. Against all odds, the author succeeded. He attended college, graduated, became a successful corporate executive, and married a wonderful woman with whom he established a loving family of his own. Through it, he dug voraciously through records and files and found his history, his birth family—and the ultimate disappointment as some family members embrace him, but others reject him. Readers won’t be the same after reading this powerful story. They will share in the hurts and despair but also in the triumph against daunting obstacles. They will share this story with their family, with their friends, with their neighbors.

The Orphan: A Journey to Wholeness addresses loneliness and the feeling of being alone in the world, two distinct characteristics that mark the life of an orphan. Regardless if we have grown up with or without parents, we are all too likely to meet such experiences in ourselves and in our daily encounters with others. With numerous case examples, Dr. Punnett describes how loneliness and the feeling of being alone tend to be repeated in later relationships and may eventually lead to states of anxiety and depression. The main purpose of this book is not to just stay within the context of the literal orphan, but also to explore its symbolic dimensions in order to provide meaning to the diverse experiences of feeling alone in the world. In accepting the orphan within, we begin to take responsibility for our own unique life journey, a privileged journey in which one can at some point in time say with pride, I am an orphan.

The message of this book is birthed from the story of an amazing woman who changed the life of many children. She dedicated her life to a cause that changed the story of these children, who ended up moving to different parts of the world.Life is a complicated journey and the fact that some people have it going great on one side of the earth does not mean it is not going horribly for some other people on another part of the earth. However, if you are on the lucky side, you may wonder why you should be bothered about the unlucky side of the circle.You need to be bothered, because in the end, the earth is roughly a sphere and what goes around will probably come around, one way or the other. The truth is, we all need to help those who seem to be on the parts of the earth that are not as "lucky" or simply do not enjoy certain the benefits. However, it should not be because of our own selfish interests or from the standpoint of trying to avoid karma. It should be out of compassion. Many people in developed parts of the world have no idea about the menace being faced in third world countries. This book hopes to reveal that. It is a book that is bound to answer the question of "What should we do if things are going good for us?" and "How can we be of help to those going through tough times?" Now, there are different people going through different things in the world, so the book picks out a certain subsection. The concern here are orphans. Many of the lucky ones end up getting housed by orphanages, so at every point, you would find orphans in an orphanage. Now, let's talk about compassion. Compassion only portrays that you are human. It is a good quality. The entire theme of this interesting story is to spark up compassion and I hope you are moved to help those in need. You can start with those around you and stretch your hands to help those in parts of the world different from where you are. Although this book and the different stories in it are purely fictional, they depict what several kids in our world go through from when they lose their parents to when they find an orphanage that serves as a safe space for them. Many of their stories start in an ugly manner and end up beautifully. You would love to see it. Happy reading!

“Heartwrenching… I loved each and every minute… Reminded me of JoJo Moyes The Giver of Stars with a dash of Kathryn Stockett’s The Help… An emotional rollercoaster.” Rachel M Writes, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Virginia, 1933: Her heart broke as she took in the scene before her. There were too many orphans and not enough beds. The rags they wore barely covered them and they hadn’t eaten in days. How could anyone let innocent children live like this? She picked up a tiny girl who’d cried as she moved past her cot. “I’ll be back soon, little one.” Never in a million years did Lauren Greenwood think she would be destitute and without a penny to her name. But when her father mercilessly disowns her in the depths of winter, that is her fate. Now homeless, Lauren finds America in the devastating grip of the Great Depression––children run wild in the icy streets, endless queues for soup kitchens line frosty sidewalks, and desperation hangs in the air. All alone in the world, Lauren finds an orphanage in the sprawling fields of the Virginia countryside, surrounded by snow-topped mountains and magnificent fir trees––a safe haven for those who have nowhere to go. But she is appalled to find children living in shocking conditions, huddled together for warmth, their hunger keeping them awake at night as the temperature plunges. The home for unloved orphans is on the brink of closure and the helpless innocents may lose the roof over their heads… Lauren, heartbroken by the rejection of her own father, vows to provide these poor orphans with the love she never received. With Christmas just around the corner, she refuses to see them cast out onto the street, where they will not survive. When she sees an advertisement in the local newspaper, with an anonymous benefactor donating money to families crippled by the Depression, it could be the answer to her prayers. Can Lauren save these children who have been rejected by the world? Or in a time of so much suffering, is there simply no hope? A heartbreaking yet hopeful tale about a brave young woman who gives up everything to help unloved children who have nothing. Fans of Before We Were Yours, The Orphan Train and Diney Costeloe will adore this USA Today bestselling historical novel, which shows that a little bit of kindness can go a long way.

Adoption and The Gospel delivers sound biblical doctrine that most have never heard. One does not need to be a bible scholar to understand its message! Gerald Clark chronicles his struggle to overcome his traditional image of an orphanage, and how he learned from heart wrenching personal experiences with the children what they so desperately want and need. Six years working with children in an orphanage in the Philippines left Gerald and his wife seeking answers to difficult and very troubling questions. If God loves me, why am I an orphan? If you love me, why dont you adopt me? I kept asking myself , Whats wrong with this picture? No matter how much we love and care for children in an orphanage, theyre still orphans. Whats wrong with the picture is that we simply dont understand that children just dont want to BE orphans. Would we need more orphanages if Adoption was part of the Global Mission Strategy of every evangelical church in the world? Adoption says something about the Gospel and Gods love that no other word can say The Gospel is incomplete if it fails to include adoption Jesus came into the world to bring us a living example of Gods love, so that we might receive the adoption as sons! Galatians 4:4-5 As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12 The solution to the worlds orphan crisis is found in the bible. Adoption Ministry equips the church to accomplish the task, and God has called millions of families around the world who already want to adopt!

Christians are clearly called to care for orphans, a group so close to the heart of Jesus. In reality, most of the 153 million orphaned and vulnerable children in the world do not need to be adopted, and not everyone needs to become an adoptive parent. However, there are other very important ways to help beyond adoption. Indeed, caring for orphaned and vulnerable children requires us to care about related issues from child trafficking and HIV/AIDS to racism and poverty. Too often, we only discuss or theologize the issues, relegating the responsibility to governments. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Based on his own personal journey toward pure religion, Johnny Carr moves readers from talking about global orphan care to actually doing something about it in Orphan Justice. Combining biblical truth with the latest research, this inspiring book: • investigates the orphan care and adoption movement in the U.S. today • examines new data on the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children • connects “liberal issues” together as critical aspects or orphan care • discovers the role of the church worldwide in meeting these needs • develops a tangible, sustainable action plan using worldwide partnerships • fleshes out the why, what, and how of global orphan care • offers practical steps to getting involved and making a difference

Morris Cerullo grew up a tough, troubled, rebellious bully. Before he was 13, life had broken him inside so badly that he devised a plan to kill himself. He might have done it, but as he lingered on the window ledge outside his bedroom, he was divinely, supernaturally rescued. The Legend of Morris Cerullo is the amazing story of how God chose an orphaned Jewish boy from New Jersey, took him into the heavens at the age of 15 where he had a supernatural encounter that forever changed the course of his life, and raised him up to reach around the world ministering to and training untold millions of followers of Jesus Christ. Many would have thought Morris Cerullo the most unlikely choice for such an assignment, but for God's sovereign purposes, he was perfect.
