REGGIE by Reggie Dabbs with John Driver

You can't change your past, but you can change your future
Thomas Nelson publishing

Born to a 16 year old teenage mother, who already had 3 other children, he was adopted and raised by his mother's high school English teacher and her husband, as their own child.  He was about 7 or 8 when he found he was not their birth child.  Reggie now goes to schools all over, telling young people that they are worthy of love, and that they are important to him. He tells them they can call him Daddy, that he cares for them, and is there for them.  He tells his story, and tells them that YOU CAN'T CHANGE YOUR PAST, BUT YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR FUTURE.  There is no telling how many lives this man has saved, with his ministry to these kids.

This is a book I would recommend to anyone, especially teachers and pastors, who deal with kids who need some self esteem. 
I was given this book to read and review by BookSneeze, no other compensation was given.  I'm not required to give a favorable review
