Silent Tears: a Journey of Hope, by Kay Bratt

An American woman moved with her family to China for her husband's work. She went determined to volunteer at an orphanage and to journal about her experiences there. Silent Tears is a collection of her journal entries.

Prepare to have your heart ripped out. Consider the orphanage worker who dangled an orphan by her ankles out a third-story window to punish her for some slight disobedience. I cried my way through this book. Send those children to me! I have room in my heart for more children.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has the stomach to read it, and especially to those who might be moved to take action on behalf of defenseless victims.
