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.
