Neglected beyond belief, rescued by love... Dani was so severely neglected by her birth mother that she grew up knowing only squalor. She never went to school or the doctor, and rarely glimpsed sunlight. Desperately malnourished, she couldn't talk and had never been toilet-trained. The social worker who took her into care had never heard of a case so horrific. The doctors believed Dani would never recover from such a terrible start in life. Then she met the Lierows - a unique, blended family who were seeking to adopt a child. Despite being warned that she was way beyond hope of a normal life, they were instantly drawn to her and sensed a bright light behind her pale complexion. When they finally adopted her, they showered Dani with so much affection and encouragement that she came to life for the first time. Proving all the experts wrong, Dani would go on to open up and express herself in a way that no-one could have expected. Dani's remarkable and heartwarming story is a testament of the power of kindness to overcome even the most seemingly insurmountable challenges.

Dani's story, the depiction of an anti-LGBT hate crime, had provoked a “sympathy response” as opposed to a “stigma response.” Iverson's analysis ofthe survey responses underscores this. In her essay in this volume, “Inspiring Change and ...

Normal.dotm0011901163SIU Press195141012.00false18 pt18 pt00falsefalsefalse!--StartFragment-- Fringe Benefits, an award-winning theatre company, collaborates with schools and communities to create plays that promote constructive dialogue about diversity and discrimination issues. Staging Social Justice is a groundbreaking collection of essays about Fringe Benefits’ script-devising methodology and their collaborations in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. The anthology also vividly describes the transformative impact of these creative initiatives on participants and audiences. By reflecting on their experiences working on these projects, the contributing writers—artists, activists and scholars—provide the readerwith tools and inspiration to create their own theatre for social change. “Contributors to this big-hearted collection share Fringe Benefits’ play devising process, and a compelling array of methods for measuring impact, approaches to aesthetics (with humor high on the list), coalition and community building, reflections on safe space, and acknowledgement of the diverse roles needed to apply theatre to social justice goals. The book beautifully bears witness to both how generative Fringe Benefits’ collaborations have been for participants and to the potential of engaged art in multidisciplinary ecosystems more broadly.”—Jan Cohen-Cruz, editor of Public: A Journal of Imagining America !--EndFragment--

“This groundbreaking work will give voice to an enormous population of women who are struggling to understand themselves in the face of their fathers’ absence.” —Claire Bidwell Smith, author of The Rules of Inheritance and After This When Motherless Daughters was published 20 years ago, it unleashed a tsunami of healing awareness. When Denna Babul and Karin Smithson couldn't find the equivalent book for fatherlessness, The Fatherless Daughter Project was born. The book will set fatherless women on the path to growth and fulfillment by helping them to understand how their loss has impacted their lives. A father is supposed to provide a sense of security and stability. Losing a father comes with particular costs that vary depending on the way he left and how old a girl was when she lost him. Drawing on interviews with over 5000 women who became fatherless due to death, divorce, neglect, and outright abandonment, the authors have found that fatherless daughters tend to push their emotions underground. These issues in turn become distinct patterns in their relationships as adult women and they often can't figure out why. Delivered with compassion and expertise, this book allows readers support and understanding they never had when they first needed it, and it encourages the conversation to continue.
To those who have encouraged us to pen these stories: These are many and without them we probably would not have taken the time to complete our story, or we would have been sidetracked into other activities.

In the first book of the Deveraux Trilogy, Danielle discovers a child she thought had died in birth is actually alive. Imagine her surprise to find not one child but three. Robert Deveraux despises Danielle for giving away their children, selling them off like unwanted property, only to discover an awful truth about lies, deceit, and the redemption his mother is desperately seeking. Is love truly everlasting? Can a broken heart be reforged? It may be too much for Dani’s heart.
Dani's story of deprivation is resonant of a similar – and more widely known – episode in the United States involving a 13-year old girl, who was found in 1970 and became known as Genie. She too had suffered severe isolation and ...

Both friendship and betrayal comprise the core of this tale, and as I wrote it, I felt like I walked a difficult line, demonstrating how Avadelle appropriated Ruth's story even as I told my own through Dani's point of view.
