THE BOY FROM BABY HOUSE 10: FROM THE NIGHTMARE OF A RUSSIAN ORPHANAGE TO A NEW LIFE IN AMERICA, BY ALAN PHILPS AND JOHN LAHUTSKY
[Non-Fiction] What a timely book! We have just followed, in horror, the story of the adoptive mother who put a Russian child on a plane to send him back because she couldn’t cope with him. This is the story of another Russian baby boy born with cerebral palsy. Abandoned by his mother, he was put into a nightmare of an orphanage called Baby House 10. Two women reached out to him and ultimately he was adopted by a single woman in the U.S. This story will warm your heart and counteract the terrible story of the other little boy from Russia.
