Michelle Mays was born into an abusive family in the Midwest. As she and her siblings cling to survival, the balance of family ties is weighed against alcoholism, drug abuse, abandonment, and despair. Hope dawns in the form of foster care, only to be deferred by multiple placements and a system not equipped to support the children it’s meant to protect.
Through powerful vignettes of a life disjointed, Mays’s story is a journey of hope that is echoed in the experiences of thousands of children in the court and foster care systems today.
“Dumpster Doll gives you a chance to open your eyes and glimpse what children in the system go through and how they got there. You may be uncomfortable, and I hope that you are. It is my sincere hope that Dumpster Doll provokes you to do something in your own community to help children.”
–Crystal Morgan, founder of Fostering Love
Dumpster Doll is brave not because it is unique, but because it unflinchingly shines a light on family turmoil, flaws in judicial systems, and ultimately, the grit and tenacity that thousands of children exhibit each day just to make it through.
