Her faith and loyalty to her mother, as well as angels in her path, allowed her to leave the projects unscathed. The memoir begins with the murder of her father and follows her mothers journey as a single mother and eventual death. Although the journey is one riddled with chaos, it is also filled with love, determination, and faith.

Sitting around the kitchen table exchanging stories and memories in our family is quite different than other families. Stories quickly will include moments of fright, hunger, death. We laugh like other families because thats all that you can do - laugh. Life From The Stoop is a reaffirming story of faith and hope.
