About the Book:
"Where is Our FREEDOM to Say NO?" was written in order to bring you several true stories of parents who in some cases had their children taken away due to wrongful actions by what we know as our Children's Medical Care System. One of the women that was highly cathartic in Shirley's innate feelings to write this book was her own mother, Juliet Cheng. Shirley Cheng through her own life and almost death experiences due to being taken away as a child has been challenged by injustice and rises to meet this challenge with full force. Through her book, she tells about her own experiences as a child when she was taken away from her mother, not once but twice due to the Medical Laws ignorance and uncaring justice system. Your hearts will certainly be aching as you read the other stories of parents and the continuous and strenuous hurdles that they were forced to overcome due to what the Children's Medical Care System deemed to be what was in the child's best interest! Shirley calls this, "a crime against humanity" and through her uncanny and amazing strength and perseverance she pushes forward toward uncovering injustice and ignorance within our Children's Medical System.
Womensselfesteem.com not only highly recommends this very effective and thorough account of the injustice in our medical system, we also applaud Shirley Cheng for yet another outstanding, inspirational and hard truth read! Once again Shirley pen's her thoughts with her heart and soul as her strength to change the unchangeable flaws in our world of justice! Without Shirley efforts and her inspiration, one can only imagine how many people would still be living with blind-thoughts and no will to keep moving forward. Again Shirley Cheng rises and adds even more inspiration and hope to her readers. Thank you Shirley Cheng for being YOU!
