Carlina Shotwell is a former foster care recipient who has recently written and self published her very first book entitled "JOURNEY". In her book, she tells a story about a foster youth searching for a safe and loving home. Her purpose for writing this book was to allow other foster youth to be able to read it and gain hope and knowledge that will help them become better than where they came from. She also hopes that this book will be the light at the end of the tunnel that shines down the dark paths they sometime have to travel. This is an amazing educational tool for young foster youth and she is excited and looking forward to making an impact through this book.
