Welcome to the Dude's Eye View.
Little Dude arrived in his sixth (and final ) foster home at age 4.
He brought with him a wicked sense of humor and a take on the world his foster parents had never heard before.
From his unique perspective, you'll learn
- the logic of lint traps
- the necessity of bribing reindeer
- why Girl Scout cookies are suitable for breakfast, and most of all
- the importance of wearing a cape
Along the way, you'll see a lost little boy (and his mom ) navigate the emotional and complicated world of adoption from foster care.
