S. F. Chapman

Author S. F. Chapmanabout this book: While filing out several college applications, seventeen-year-old Renita discovers some subtle inconsistencies in her birth certificate that put her mother Sharon's long held account that she was adopted into doubt. Faced with the difficult task of coming clean about the past, Sharon decides that it is finally time to tell Renita about both the laudable good deeds and the lamentable oversights that had led them to the current situation.

Using a series of old framed photos that have hung for years in the living room, Sharon slowly reveals the complex set of events that transpired before Renita's birth.

"I'm here to help" by S F Chapman tells an often wrenching tale of a mother's love for her adopted daughter and how seemingly minor decisions can lead to complex and unexpected outcomes.

The story deals in a straight forward way with issues that many families face: unexpected deaths, teen pregnancy, empathy towards strangers, sibling rivalries and many others.
