This is a story of adoption, resilience, and redemption designed for all who have had moments when they have felt voiceless, marginalized or abandoned. Bolstered by her faith, family and a fierce fight for self-worth, Thompson reclaims the joy of living and chooses to dance.
Dancing in My Tattered Pink Dress is an empowering, engaging and lucid story. Thompson's journey is one of spirit and spunk. Her humor and honesty give new meanings to such words as "home," "resilience," and "self-advocacy."
