Dedicated to my parents , family, friends and all children orphaned by war.

I received some of my greatest inspiration and motivation to write this book about ten years ago. It was the day I first visited an orphanage for physically-challenged kids in Uzbekistan. That day, I was so moved that I planned to start a project that would help kids with disabilities in similar circumstances. I later realized that the plight of other kids like them in other war-torn countries was much greater. Nevertheless, they say that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. So, the net royalties of $10,000 from this project will assist NGOs working with these kids.
