That was something I could really relate to," said Nathan Ross of the Midwest Foster Care and Adoption Association.
Ross not only relates to her; he sees his story in LP. Ross was just 10 years old when his brothers died of starvation and infection from burns caused by blistering bath water.
Ross was rescued and later adopted. That's what he hopes for LP.
Sixteen years after the abuse, Ross is still recovering from trauma, but he says it's easier with a great support system.
