My Book Review of From Foster Care To Fabulous by Capri Cruz

FROM FOSTER CARE TO FABULOUS:An Imperative MovementFROM FOSTER CARE TO FABULOUS:An Imperative Movement by Capri C. Cruz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received an autographed copy of “From Foster Care to Fabulous: An Imperative Movement” from Ms. Capri Cruz when I had met her at the 2014 Helping Women Succeed in Atlanta Spring Empowerment Summit. Meeting her was such a delight. Ms. Cruz is very down to earth and it’s no wonder her story moved me the way that it did. First, Ms. Cruz does not dumb down the facts of what it was like for her growing up in the foster care system. She opens up about her childhood trauma and what it took for her to become the beautiful and inspirational woman that she is today. Capri’s journey from her traumatic experiences and all that she had to go through to turn at all into wisdom and most of all love to share with us in her incredible novel, is truly brave and commendable. What I took from the story was so much more deeper than any words could describe. It was like a friend who has so much passion and love to share with me, just opened up and gave me this gift of their story of not only surviving and overcoming the odds, but about how to be a thriving, spiritual person who can appreciate the true value of life, love, and being fabulous. I recommend this book to parents of foster children, adults who are considering foster care/adoption, and young adult foster youth. Capri Cruz’s “From Foster Care to Fabulous” is an incredibly moving story of hard work, hope and love.
