This dark and edgy tale is a true-to-life account about the brutal experiences a group of foster children and handicapped men encounter in a foster home. Numerous foster children and mentally-challenged men are brutally beaten at the hands of evil and cold-hearted foster parents. The home is scrupulously unsanitary, with large rats and cockroaches nesting throughout the house.
The diabolical foster father, J. D. Willingham, proves extremely abusive by brutally raping a fourteen year old innocent and helpless foster girl. She is taken away and sent to another foster home. Social service authorities are apprehensive about bringing more foster children to the home after the occurrence of the senseless rape. The cycle of abuse doesn’t stop there.
J. D. then impregnates another foster girl after she is manipulated into giving in to his strong sexual advances. The foster mother, Bessie Mae Willingham, suspects her husband is a rapist and child molestor. She threatens to end his life by placing a loaded pistol to his head. After suffering a fatal stroke due to her failing health, the appropriate child care services are contacted and the notorious foster parenting home is finally shut down. Based on a powerfully true story, the facts take the reader deep into the inner sanctums of an insanely brutal foster home where the specter of abuse and neglect lurks. [more]
