The Length of Our Staircase

Have you ever started to climb a staircase and wondered when it would end? Each step an accomplishment, ending one step of a struggle. Climb the stairs with Rose on her journey to fulfill her dreams. Conquer each of the forty-seven steps. Fight the battles with her as she learns to trust her heart. The Length of Our Staircase is fiction, based on a true story about a strong, independent woman named Rose. While lacking confidence, she is determined to fulfill her late mothers wish, to adopt an older boy who needs a home. It is both heart-breaking and heart-warming as Rose adopts the child and then faces years of hardships and conflicts because of her son's abusive past. One problem leads to another, and Rose finds that her life now has a purpose: to succeed in creating a happy life for her son and a happy life for herself. It is the story of two unlikely people who form a bonding relationship in a difficult situation. You will find yourself on the edge of your seat, with a tear in your eye, hoping and praying that Rose and her new son finally get a break and find happiness. This story is for every mother who fought for their child in any difficult situation. Whether you gave birth to a child or have been there for a child in need, you will feel very close to this story, and it will remind you of your own journey and the staircase you climbed.
