Rob Scheer, Jon Sternfeld – contributor – A Forever Family

In the tradition of The Promise of a Pencil and Kisses from Katie comes an inspirational memoir by the founder of Comfort Cases about his turbulent childhood in the foster care system and the countless obstacles and discrimination he endured in adopting his four children.

Rob Scheer never thought he would be living the life he is now. Hes happily married to his partner and love of his life, hes the father of four beautiful children, and hes the founder of an organization that makes life better for thousands of children in the foster care system.

But life wasnt always like this.

Growing up in an abusive household before his placement in foster care, Rob had all the odds stacked against him. Kicked out of his foster familys home within weeks after turning 18 – with a year left of high school to go – he had to resort to sleeping in his car and in public bathrooms. He suffered from drug addiction and battled with depression, never knowing when his next meal would be or where he would sleep at night. But by true perseverance, he was able to find his own path and achieve his wildest dreams.

Poignant, gripping, and inspiring, Robs story provides a glimpse into what its like to grow up in the foster care system, and sheds necessary light on the children who are often treated without dignity. Both a timely call to action and a courageous and candid account of life in the foster care system, A Forever Family ultimately leaves you with one message: one person can make a difference.

This compelling listen tugs at your heartstrings, reminding you that anything is possible if you believe in, and lead with love. I have listened to it twice since I purchased it, and each time cried such a therapeutic cry to listen to the unbelievable challenges Rob went through in his life, and smiled so strongly with pride to listen to how he refused to let it defeat him, and how he made something better from it. The love story or Rob and Reese is simply lovely. You hear Rob’s adoration for his partner in the tone of how he describes their journey together makes you wish that they were a standard of love stories in today’s modern age. I’m so grateful to have found this story to provide perspective when I needed it, and inspiration to believe in the good humans of this world, like Rob and Reese. Their children will have a magical future because of their love and commitment to family.
