Download or read book Somebody s Daughter written by Julian Sher and published by Chicago Review Press. This book was released on 2013-04-01 with total page 354 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: They are America's forgotten children, the hundreds of thousands of child prostitutes who walk the Las Vegas Strip, the casinos of Atlantic City, the truck stops on interstates, and the street corners of our cities. Many people wrongly believe sex trafficking involves young women from foreign lands. In reality, the majority of teens caught in the sex trade are American girls--runaways and throwaways who become victims of ruthless pimps. In Somebody's Daughter: The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children and the Battle to Save Them, meet the girls who are fighting for their dignity, the cops who are trying to rescue them, and the community activists battling to protect the nation's most forsaken children. Author Julian Sher takes you behind the scenes to expose one of America's most underreported crimes: A girl from New Jersey gets arrested in Las Vegas and, at great risk to her own life, helps the FBI take down a million-dollar pimping empire. An abused teenager in Texas has the courage to take the stand in a grueling trial that sends her pimp away for 75 years. Survivors of the sex trade in New York, Phoenix, and Minneapolis set up shelters and rescue centers that offer young girls a chance to break free from the streets. &“The sex trade is the new drug trade,&” says one FBI special agent, and Somebody's Daughter is a call to action, shining a light on America's dirty little secret.

Download or read book Somebody s Daughter written by Marie G. Lee and published by Beacon Press. This book was released on 2005 with total page 286 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Somebody's Daughter is the story of nineteen-year-old Sarah Thorson, who was adopted as a baby by a Lutheran couple in the Midwest. After dropping out of the University of Minnesota, she decides to study in Korea for a summer, more by happenstance than actual design, but as the summer progresses she becomes more and more intrigued by her Korean heritage and eventually embarks on a crusade to find her birthmother. Paralleling Sarah's story is that of Kyung-sook, who was forced by difficult circumstances to let her baby be swept away from her immediately after birth, but who has always longed for her lost child. The two stories are told side by side: Kyung-sook's is the remembrance of her childhood involvement with an American who eventually abandons her when she refuses to have an abortion, while Sarah's is the contemporary story of her deepening involvement with the culture and language of Korea, with Doug, her Korean American classmate, and with her search. These two narratives converge in one poignant moment, when the two women literally pass each other like ships in the night.

Book excerpt: Sue and Greg Hibbs were lucky to have been able to have a perfect little boy, but Sue desperately wanted to have a large family, since she had been an only and lonely child. After several years of running from doctor to doctor with no answers or solutions, they were advised to adopt from an unwed mothers’ home. They felt so blessed when they picked up their newborn baby girl, realizing that God had finally answered their prayers for another child. They raised both children with unlimited love, attention, and Christian guidance, giving them every opportunity they could afford. To their surprise, their beautiful daughter began to change into a different person with a value system, inconsistent with her Christian upbringing. After marrying a possessive husband, she chose to end the relationship with her parents, shutting them out of her life for twenty-five years. After a tragedy in her life, she returned, but only for a short time. Their lives became a roller-coaster journey, taking its toll on their marriage and health, as they struggled with the blessings and curses of adoption.
