REDEFINING NORMAL:  How Two Foster Kids Beat the Odds to Discover Healing, Happiness and Love

Description automatically generated

 In their stark and often shocking story, Alexis and Justin reveal how two people brutalized in childhood managed to defy the odds, get healthy, and build a new life together. Guided by hope and a sense of purpose, as well as a desire to help others who have similarly suffered, they learned to reject the abusive patterns of their past, thereby breaking the cycle of generational violence and neglect.

 The memoir that he wrote with his wife, Alexis Black, is a page-turner that will restore faith in dreaming big. Written in alternating accounts, Justin and Alexis offer a thoughtful exchange of ideas and personal experiences illustrating how anybody, no matter their background, can heal and find joy.

 It is honest and vulnerable. This story is raw, wrenching, and necessary. He will help us understand the plight of youth in foster care and never perceive it as an abstract statistic! https://re-definingnormal.square.site/
