Victoria Rowell's book is recommended reading

From the moment little Vicki Lynn Bevans Sawyer Collins Rowell (aka Victoria Rowell, Drucilla, Y&R) came into this world on May 10, 1959, she was thrust into the foster-care system. Her mother, Dorothy, was schizophrenic with four other children she did not have the means - mentally and monetarily - with which to raise them.

Her story is one of survival, perseverance and the importance of family - whether you're born into it or are lucky enough that it finds you. Sometimes, it does indeed take a village to raise a child, and Victoria's life is glorious proof of that.

Cindy Elavsky reviews her book, ""The Women Who Raised Me: A Memoir".
