Kim Wheelerabout this book: Is a gritty, brutal, honest and painful story of just some my experiences in my life.
It begins with desertion by my birth mother just fifteen days after I was born in London. Sadly for both of us she seemed to have little choice but to desert me and hand me over to the local authorities after she had stoically carried for nine months. Mother and child were never to see each other again.
The story continues with my journey through the varied extremes of life...which includes the journey from children’s home through the fostering and adoption and sadly, where that went wrong and the feelings of rejection after being sent away some six years later to a boarding school, leaving aged fifteen with little qualifications to face the world alone.
The book covers several abuses metered out mainly due to skin colour, unknown parentage and humble beginnings and then swiftly moves on to a litany of injuries, surviving meningitis, drug and alcohol abuse and then disabled with an incurable spine injury.
The Battle Scarred Journey then describes about complete breakdown and how bit by bit day by day I climbed from the bottom of my pit towards the light of freedom and salvation, a journey that in itself took ten years to where I am now a free and content man who enjoys nothing more than his rescue dogs, positive attitude, freedom and contentment which seemed unobtainable many years ago.
