Summary: An extraordinary book. Chilling, inspiring, and utterly convincing, it creates an ironclad case for the adoption solution. --Sylvia Ann Hewlett, coauthor ofThe War Against Parents ''Bartholet sounds the alarm on the savage consequences the child welfare system has on so many children and challenges us to confront the reality that substance abuse . . . is the culprit in most cases of child abuse and neglect.
