The Sequel to "Life As A Foster Child"

If like me, you were riveted by Debra's (dc64) haunting Squidoo Lens Of The Day "Life As A Foster Child" you may have also been left wondering: "What happened to the Troubled Foster Child?" Was her adulthood as difficult as her childhood? Did she have a happy ending?

The answers to these and other questions can be found in Debra's Squidoo Lensography Dc64 is Debra, and she's a little unusual (My lensography too). Her lensography is sort of like a sequel to "Life As A Foster Child", because you get a peak into Debra's facinating adulthood.

I don't want to spoil it for you, but just tease you enough to read it. Debra tells us about living under a bridge for two weeks until she could trade up for an abandoned car. She tells us about her son's miracle birth, her life in Germany and how she bucked up the courage to meet her Ex. And we learn about how she dressed for work (twice) in rather unusual apparel.

Squidoo's best known Foster Child has indeed had a rich and facinating life and she is only in her 40s. Debra has turned into a gifted writer and story teller. If you were transfixed by "Life As A Foster Child", you will enjoy reading Debra's Lensography.


  1. I'm so glad you posted this. I remember reading her first lens, which made me feel so sad for her. This one was a day-brightener. She's an amazing woman who has weathered much.

  2. On my way now. Cannot pass up that wonderful intro!
