“Dear Dr. Milligan,:
I am a volunteer for CASA in the state of Missouri. They have suggested reading material to help us understand child abuse as related to the children we will work with. One of the books was, God Must Be Sleeping.
Even though I am a voracious reader, I could only read it a little at a time. The thought of anyone, much less a child, being treated so horribly, is almost more than I can stand. Several times I almost quit reading it. I did finish the book due to the fact that, even as a child, you always clung to hope.
I also kept reading knowing it would make me a more compassionate person and in the future possibly help a child I might meet.
I am so thankful you have triumphed and broke the pattern of abuse for your family. Anyone who comes to know you will be blessed.
Thank you for writing your books and the blessing you are to this world.”
