Living Proof: From Foster Care to the White House and NBA
The powerful story of a former foster care child, born premature to a courageous teenager caught up in the grips of substance abuse and how he overcame the challenges of life in pursuit of his dreams. Developmentally delayed as a result of exposure to the substance abuse that his birth mother sought to overcome, Lucas Daniel Boyce struggled out of the gate and ended up failing kindergarten. His adoptive mother, Dorothy, didn’t cast him aside as another tragic statistic, however. Instead, Dorothy Boyce instilled in Lucas two very important principles that drove his determination to overcome the cards he’d been dealt and enabled him to eventually serve at the White House, fly aboard Air Force One, and become an executive with the NBA’s Orlando Magic at the age of 29.
What People are Saying
Loved, loved this book! It is one of the most uplifting and encouraging books I have read. From the opening lines to the last sentence, it kept my attention and left me wanting more. I find myself constantly turning back to it to reread a line or a quote, to be inspired, to remember why I do what I do.Rebecca BlackburnDiversity Initiatives, Florida Bar
