Another Five Star Review for Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option


5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Catcher by Yvonne Mason,April 14, 2012
This review is from: Dream Catcher, Failure Was Never An Option (na) (Kindle Edition)

I read this book with great interest from an author who I admire and enjoy reading. The fact that this is a true story was a bit of a deterrent at first because I enjoy escaping into a world of imagination when I select a book, yet the subject matter was one I could not put aside and ignore.

The story, written by his sister, Yvonne Mason, is about the successful life built by a man who was born with a failure label stamped on his head by society at large..packaged, bookmarked and placed on a shelf to be regarded with little interest and/or caring by the general populace. His decision to jump into living and take the reins had been fueled and championed by his loving family..Stanley grew up believing that he was just like everyone else and could do whatever he chose and wanted to do.
His choices were many and as he sought out and found honest labor and earned all his own money to make his lifestyle possible. He succeeded throughout the years because the thought of giving up just wasn’t in his personal dictionary..failure was not an option and would never be considered.

Stan became a revered adult, loved by many friends and enjoyed the respect that he so well deserved by anyone who was lucky enough to come into his life. A great teacher of those around him, he taught others to never stop reaching for your dreams, no matter what your circumstances, real or imagined.

This book is a must read for those who entertain the idea of just giving up, which we all may do from time to time and for those who could learn a lesson from someone who was deemed mentally retarded in an age when institutionalization followed on the next breath. His strong and wise mother spit out that word and raised her son along with his father, to be someone any parents would be more than proud of and Stan never ceased to amaze his family and still does in every way~
You will be amazed as your read of his strong will and stubborn attitude to succeed and build a wonderful life~

The Stovepipe A Review

Corruption in Child Protective Services is as much a part of the system as the money they earn off the backs of the children they steal for profit. This is one woman’s story of how she and her siblings, at least the ones she knew traveled the Abyss of CPS through the darkness of abuse, starvation and other atrocities which no child should endure at the hands of foster care providers and their children. They were taken and placed in homes which were worse than the one they were taken from. At least in their own home they had love and protection, there was no one to protect them in the homes of strangers who had no love for them.

The Stovepipe


By Yvonne Mason “Author” (Port St Lucie, Fl.)

This review is from: The Stovepipe (Paperback)
The Stovepipe by Bonnie E Virag is one of the most powerful books I have ever read by a child abused by the system. Child Protective Services is one of the most corrupt government agencies that exist. They have no concern for the child, it is all about the money to them. Children who are torn from their homes always wonder as Ms. Virag did, “What did I do wrong?” They are separated from their siblings who are their anchor and placed in homes that treat them worse than where they were taken from. They are moved from strangers house to strangers house and never feel as if they have a home- a real home. They are not loved just used and abused.
I applaud Ms. Virag for having the courage to put to paper the cruelity, corruption and loss she and her siblings suffered at the hands of a government agency. As a grandmother whose daughter lost her children simply becasue she was poor I could feel the terror, the pain and the suffering not to mention the abuse these children suffered at the hands of strangers who only cared because of the money and the extra “hands” to work the farm.

Children who are taken by the system have no safety net, it has been taken from them. Those in charge don’t care.

An excellent book, for anyone who has the misguided notion that they want to be a social worker, in order to “help children”. Trust me it is not about the children it is about the money.
