Reading Mr. McKenzie's Miracle Mountain makes me want to go out and do something to change the way the "system" is destroying the lives of children in this country. Several years ago, my husband and I decided to adopt a teenage boy that had been placed in one foster home after another. Before we were able to finalize training and home inspections, we were told that the boy was no longer adoptable because he was setting fires in the home where he was staying.
The news was very upsetting and my husband and I decided not to finish the training.
The way children are being cared for today by those claiming to be there to help them is criminal. Thank you Mr.

McKenzie for shedding some light on life in an orphanage today and in the past. It was truly an eye opener. It should be regarded as the Bible on childcare in America and should be required reading for every Judge, prosecutor, social worker, lawyer, school teacher and parent in the country. This valuable book is scholarly, objective and yet arrives at a profoundly important point-of -view regarding long-term care in competent, caring children's homes. It totally dispels many of the preconceived notions of children's homes.
It displaces once and for all the old Dickensian notion of children's homes in the eighteenth century with the Dickens Press Dickensian Press publication of children's homes in the twenty-first century. It deals fairly with bureaucratic notions of nature and nurture, family preservation and reunification, adoption and foster care, treatment and reform care. It forces us to conclude that the bureaucratic notion to exclude children's homes as an important alternative for many children is pure lunacy. The book correctly points out that "The crime is that many foster-care children go through a dozen even two dozen placements during their childhoods".
I thank Professor McKenzie for this very important volume that gives hope to thousands of children in need of a home and a helping hand that should not be in adoptive or foster care programs.
