Abbi Glines (Author of Fallen Too Far)Abbi Glines is a #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, Field Party and Existence series. She never cooks unless baking during the Christmas holiday counts. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. Don’t judge.

Glenville native Antwone Fisher, whose autobiography was made into a Hollywood film directed by Denzel Washington, chats with another witness at a Senate Finance Committee hearing on reforming the child welfare system. On Tuesday, it was the subject of a U. Senate hearing on ways to reform the child welfare system. Fisher's father was murdered before he was born and his mother was in prison at the time of his birth. He spent 12 years living with a foster family who abused him physically, sexually and verbally before he was sent to a reform school in Western Pennsylvania. He said making rules for himself, such as avoiding drugs and not staying out late, kept him out of trouble while living on the streets.
However, the critically acclaimed movie does not tell the whole story, the real Antwone Fisher told SocialWorkersSpeak. People are hard on social workers. Let them go out there and try to do what social workers try to do. Fisher was born in prison and placed in foster homes in Cleveland, Ohio soon after birth. He was eventually placed with the Pickett family where he suffered emotional, physical and sexual abuse and later became homeless before joining the Navy. Social workers did not rescue him from his abusive home, possibly because his foster mother coerced him into believing social workers could not help him so Fisher kept silent.
