Three Little Words by : Ashley Rhodes- Courter

The book three little words is not about the three little words everyone would think of. Ashley was three and a half when she was taken away from her mother. For nine years Ashley had 19 different foster parents. Some were kind and some I don’t think even deserve to be called parents. People like Marjorie and Charles Moss should have never been able to foster children. The memoir about Ashley makes you appreciate your life and allows you to sympathize with her. By the age of 12 she had been bounced around to 14 different homes and attended 9 different schools. Usually teens hate the idea of going to school but for Ashley it was her escape. Social services knew about the situations she had to endure but did and said nothing. She grew to ignore case workers when they said things to her, she thought they were all the same. Until she met Mary Miller, who unknowingly to Ashley had her best interests in mind. In July 28 1998 she was adopted by Gay and Phil Courter. Thinking that she would be sent back to a foster home when asked “ Do you want to make the sign the papers and make it official.” by the judge she answers “I guess so.” Those are the three little words and in that small phrase she thought in her head that it was all a sham so a simple answer was suitable. But what she didn’t know then is that some people can be trusted. As said in the book “ It only takes three little words to break free from the past.”

I think this book is going on my “books everyone should read” list. So many obstacles are thrown Ashley’s way and she overcame them all. Being taken away from your mother, your life and everything you know is a challenge in itself, but then to top that be put in foster care and dealing with abusive and “parents” with a criminal back ground seems impossible to deal with. I really enjoyed reading and learning about Ashley’s life and the people in hers and I think everyone should read this book!!!!
