I have to confess I have a humongous soft spot for the stray stories. Maybe it's because I'm a mother and I can't fathom a child being abandoned that way (at any age). Hits all those "mama bear" buttons. :-)
Yeah, me too. I just reread Shayla Kirsten's Thirty Days last night. Another good "stray" story. Warning, it contains mention of severe abuse, and is major hurt/comfort.
God, I cried during that one and the sequel, broke my heart. Make me want to kick someone really bad. LOL
I asked her once on an ebook chat if she'd ever do a third one. At that time she wasn't planning it. I'd love to see what happens to Cavan after a few years.
There are a lot of stories about strays, but considering how many kids get kicked out of their homes when they come out to their parents, it doesn't feel unrealistic.Tom Robinson has a great song called "Chance" about being a stray.
Wow! What an amazing song! Thanks for sharing. I never understood kicking your kids out. I was told I couldn't have kids; my two "miracles" are precious to me. Raising them wasn't always easy, but they're mine and I love them unconditionally.
You are very welcome. His song "Glad To Be Gay '04" is also excellent.I don't understand parents who kick their kids out, either. :(
I'll have to check that song out. You do have a knack for finding great, thought-provoking music.
Aw, thanks. :)
