Panning for Gold is the remarkable and memorable journey of a young man who has to come to terms with the adversities he had to struggle against as a child and teenager growing up in foster care from the ages of 6-19 years. His mother was a paranoid schizophrenic and he never knew his real father. All he had was his two younger brothers and his belief in a higher power to help him endure and overcome the pain. As his faith was constantly tested, he observed how many people feel that the past should be left behind but his past constantly resurfaces as he bounces from home to home and shelter to shelter. The young child was gifted in the literary arts but never accepted his talent because he was always too busy trying to fit in with his surroundings to maintain a placement. It is a heartwrenching, yet funny tale of what many children today have to endure while coming from a broken home, but gives insight to what you can attain and achieve if only you stop to sift through the dirt of life and learn to believe in yourself; for who knows what you may find when you finally begin to look within.
