Heather Wilson wrote a book, “Heather’s Tears: The Story of an American Orphan,” which chronicles her life as a foster child. Entering the foster system at six months of age, she lived in numerous homes. Many of those homes were abusive. Only wanting a family to call her own, Heather was never adopted. At the age of 18, she aged out of the system and is now enrolled in college.

Heather Wilson reaches out to others with a desire to help make their lives easier. She works at a group home and has written her book with the desire to inspire families to foster-to-adopt. “Heather’s Tears: The Story of an American Orphan” has been picked up by Barnes & Noble.
