The story of an abandoned child's tragic fate as a migrant worker in Saudi Arabia. Inspired by a true story, In memory of Rizana Nafeek. INTRODUCTION The tales of most orphans are rarely told. Life often deals them short straws. But this tale has more twists to it than most. It is of a young girl whose starts with the difficult life of being an orphan in a small town in Sri Lanka but finds herself given the opportunity and promise of life with two willing parents who are unable to bear a child of their own. Like many orphans taken out of an orphanage, Ramya learns that life in an adoptive home is not all it was imagined to be. She is ultimately sent to work in a country where customs and laws do not favor outsiders, and life just gets harder. It begins with simple abuse and gets worse. Ramya finds herself in a place no young woman should be trapped in a land where injustice reigns. MY INSPIRATION FOR WRITING THE BOOK This book was inspired by the true, tragic story of a Sri Lankan female who went to a Middle Eastern country to work, like so many before her. Her painful ordeal and dealings which the law in that country resulted in her unfair and unmerited death at the hands of people who see workers from other countries as nothing but a plague in their own. WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK This book is written with the thoughts of every struggling orphan who has ever been shipped overseas, especially into Saudi Arabia, with the promise of fortunes and life anew, only to be neglected, wrongly treated, and maligned and attacked bylaws that only protect the native-born. Countless lives are lost on the allegations of promiscuity through sharia law, while others are wrongly convicted because they either don't fit into the social standards or are simply outsiders. This book is written for these people who cannot speak. It is not fictitious propaganda against those of the Middle East, but a tale full of truth about the cruelty the world holds for those regarded as outsiders in the Middle East in countries like Saudi. I want this book to fight for the weak and suffering and help them attain justice. Scroll up and grab your copy now.

Suzannah and Noel are finally getting the child they've so desperately wanted, and nine-year-old Orchid calls them Mummy and Daddy from the start. She's a precocious child who is certainly a bit different than what Suzannah was expecting, and she will admit she's a bit disappointed she's especially close to Noel but glad that he's such a doting father. Things start to go from odd to drastically weird after Orchid moves in and Noel isn't much of a sounding board for Suzannah, he thinks Suzannah's imagination is running wild. Thankfully she has her best friend Lila to talk to about all the odd things that are happening around the house since Orchid moved in. They have been warned that it will take time for Orchid to settle into their family, but the problems they encounter seem out of the ordinary. Rooms are flooded, mirrors are smashed and Orchid owns up to none of it. Then things take a sinister turn and Suzannah becomes truly frightened. Who is this child they have let into their lives and will they ever be able to tame her? When things start to get dangerous, will she have Noel's support to figure out what is going on with the house and Orchid?

The Orphan: A Journey to Wholeness addresses loneliness and the feeling of being alone in the world, two distinct characteristics that mark the life of an orphan. Regardless if we have grown up with or without parents, we are all too likely to meet such experiences in ourselves and in our daily encounters with others. With numerous case examples, Dr. Punnett describes how loneliness and the feeling of being alone tend to be repeated in later relationships and may eventually lead to states of anxiety and depression. The main purpose of this book is not to just stay within the context of the literal orphan, but also to explore its symbolic dimensions in order to provide meaning to the diverse experiences of feeling alone in the world. In accepting the orphan within, we begin to take responsibility for our own unique life journey, a privileged journey in which one can at some point in time say with pride, I am an orphan.

The baby abandoned on the doorstep is a phenomenon that has virtually disappeared from our experience, but in the early modern world, unwanted children were a very real problem for parents, government officials, and society. The Unwanted Child skillfully recreates sixteenth-century Nuremberg to explore what befell abandoned, neglected, abused, or delinquent children in this critical period. Joel F. Harrington tackles this question by focusing on the stories of five individuals. In vivid and poignant detail, he recounts the experiences of an unmarried mother-to-be, a roaming mercenary who drifts in and out of his children’s lives, a civic leader handling the government’s response to problems arising from unwanted children, a homeless teenager turned prolific thief, and orphaned twins who enter state care at the age of nine. Braiding together these compelling portraits, Harrington uncovers and analyzes the key elements that link them, including the impact of war and the vital importance of informal networks among women. From the harrowing to the inspiring, The Unwanted Child paints a gripping picture of life on the streets five centuries ago.

The figure of the orphan is scattered throughout the pages of Victorian novels, though few novelists created orphans that were quite as memorable as Charles Dickens. Lonely orphans and abused children appear in nearly all of Dickens' fictional works; in the novels in which the orphan is the main character, this innocent, helpless orphan is often adopted by a wealthy and benevolent benefactor, and the orphan is thus redeemed by a dramatic rescue. In Great Expectations, however, Dickens inverts this redemption by rescue that was so characteristic of his earlier novels. Instead of an innocent, helpless child, Great Expectations has Pip, a vain, selfish young man hoping for social elevation; instead of wealthy, benevolent benefactors, Great Expectations has frightening, scheming adults who would sooner use Pip than rescue him. While there is no redemption by rescue in the novel, there is hope for redemption by forgiveness: the orphan must forgive himself and the adults who wronged him. My argument is that this redemption by forgiveness is far more powerful than the redemption by rescue of Dickens' early novels, and this study examines the adults who failed to redeem Pip and seeks to understand why Dickens would have deviated so far from the pattern of his earlier orphan narratives.

In this stunning new historical novel inspired by true events, Kim van Alkemade tells the fascinating story of a woman who must choose between revenge and mercy when she encounters the doctor who subjected her to dangerous medical experiments in a New York City Jewish orphanage years before. In 1919, Rachel Rabinowitz is a vivacious four-year-old living with her family in a crowded tenement on New York City’s Lower Eastside. When tragedy strikes, Rachel is separated from her brother Sam and sent to a Jewish orphanage where Dr. Mildred Solomon is conducting medical research. Subjected to X-ray treatments that leave her disfigured, Rachel suffers years of cruel harassment from the other orphans. But when she turns fifteen, she runs away to Colorado hoping to find the brother she lost and discovers a family she never knew she had. Though Rachel believes she’s shut out her painful childhood memories, years later she is confronted with her dark past when she becomes a nurse at Manhattan’s Old Hebrews Home and her patient is none other than the elderly, cancer-stricken Dr. Solomon. Rachel becomes obsessed with making Dr. Solomon acknowledge, and pay for, her wrongdoing. But each passing hour Rachel spends with the old doctor reveal to Rachel the complexities of her own nature. She realizes that a person’s fate—to be one who inflicts harm or one who heals—is not always set in stone. Lush in historical detail, rich in atmosphere and based on true events, Orphan #8 is a powerful, affecting novel of the unexpected choices we are compelled to make that can shape our destinies.
