Her experiences and insights will provide a different perspective and understanding of the mind and “heart set” that underlies the sense of indifference, resistance, anger, and/or rejection they may experience from the children/youth they are reaching out to. She, and some of the youth (now adults) she’s worked with, share some of the ways in which she was able to make heart connections which helped them to embrace and channel their pain into dreams; as well as the struggles she endured in loving the sons she brought into her heart and her home. Readers will be able to identify, validate, and learn how to take care of their own emotions and well-being, and not lose their minds or selves in the process of trying to “be the village” that raises a child and loves them through.

Through My Eyes: All About Me
Author: Angie Machado
List Price: $13.95
(From author Angie Machado’s own words)
“Through My Eyes” is a true reflection of my life story. I really thought that because my mother was a prostitute and addicted to drugs that my life would be destined to be just like hers. I decided that I would make a difference knowing that it would be hard starting off with so many obstacles in my way and having no foundation. This was not going to hold me down. I’m a survivor determined to be the best and have the best for me and my kids knowing that I’m not a victim of my circumstance. So I figured that if I exposed the dirty secrets of what happen to me it would never be able to hold me down and it may just help someone expose their secrets to.
