Simply your book is amazing and your even more amazing. Well done for all your achievements you deserve and worked for it.
Hey Cupcake, I received your book as a gift at Christmas and I just started reading it....Man, I can hardly put it down, all I can say is "God is Good" Continued Blessing to you.
Dear Cup, Forgive me for calling you Cup as I don't know you personally but I feel as if I do as i have spent the last two days clinching the pages of your book.i just finished and was in tears. I finished reading it 30 minutes ago and I'm still crying. Just so overwhelmed with emotion and love for you. Especially that little 11 year old girl, I am especially showering her with so much love. I grew up in the streets of East L.A. Boyle Heights to be exact and although I'm 45 now and live a very different life girl, you brought back all kinds of memories. My name wasn't Lori Norman then, it's been a while since I thought of that time in my young life. Thank you, thank you for your courage, you are truly such an amazing force and I feel so humbled by your story. Your memoir has profoundly touched me and my heart feels expanded as a result of reading it. Many continued blessings to you and your soul family. Just thank you.
My mom bought your book for me this past Christmas. She heard you speaking on t.v. or the radio not sure but she knows I love to read. A fellow student from SDSU as well and in recovery. Your book is on point. I salute you sister and cant wait for another book. I sit waiting patiently....Sincerely, Crystal Lee
Thank you for sharing your story with the public. I am an avid reader and discovered your book by accident. However, it is the greatest, most incredible memoir I've ever read. And I've read a lot. Wishing you only the best in all things possible.
I just got your book and can't wait to read it. I will get back when I am done. Blessings.
WOW! Preacher was right - you were meant for greatness! Thank you for posting a picture, it's wonderful to see that sparkling smile! Gorgeous lady! I'm writing specifically because of something you wrote " We weren't related by blood, we were related by love". I was adopted at birth and my family says "blood may be thicker than water, but love is thicker than blood." I glad we came to the same conclusion. I may borrow your take on it. absolutely beautiful. thank you for being brave enough to write your story down and share it. Thank you.
I see from your picture that you now sparkle!!! Lovely! I am a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). Thank you for this book. You are a brave woman and you gave me tools to help my foster kids. Again, thank you!
Cupcake WOW - I just finished your book. I could not put your book down. It was one of the best books ever. I cried with you, laughed with you. I was crying so hard at your graduation I could barely see to read the remainder of the book. You are truly a blessing and an inspiration. Love you Charlotte

I am not quite done with the book. But so far all i can say is wow. You are a big inspiration and makes me realize anything is possible. I found your book at a library book store. Best thing I have ever got from a library,
thank you for sharing your story Cupcake. I just finished it and I am crying. You are an amazing woman! My daughter who is a new social worker loaned me your book. I am a nurse and I work with young, vulnerable young women who are pregnant and parenting. Two of "my girls" are wanting to write a book about their lives. Another one had never read an entire book. She chose to read, "are you there God, it's me Margaret " I think she would learn a lot from your book. I might have to buy several of your books to share, unless you could donate a few?
I read your book a good few years ago now, and I would just like to say, to go through what you have and come out the other side is phenomenal, your words and the things you had been through helped me with things that happened in my life so far, you really are an inspirational person, thank you for sharing your story with us and having the confidence to do ao
