Kurzbeschreibung

30. Juli 2002

Finally, a beginning . . .

The time had finally come. The time I had been waiting for through all these long months that I knew sooner or later had to occur. Now it was here.

She had surprised me so much by actually crying that for a moment I did nothing but look at her. Then I gathered her into my arms, hugging her tightly. She clutched onto my shirt so that I could feel the dull pain of her fingers digging into my skin. She cried and cried and cried. I held her and rocked the chair back and on its rear legs, feeling my arms and chest get damp from the tears and her hot breath and the smallness of the room.

Pressestimmen

'Torey Hayden deserves the kind of respect I can't give many people. She isn't valuable, she's incredible. The world needs more like Torey Hayden.' - Boston Globe 'It has been a long time since you have read a book with the sheer emotional impact of One Child.' - New York Times 'Page after page proves again the power of love and the resiliency of life.' - Los Angeles Times -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

Six year old Sheila had been abandoned by her mother on a highway when she was four. A survivor of horrific abuse, she never spoke, never cried, and was placed in a class for severely retarded children after committing an atrocious act of violence against another child. Everyone thought Sheila was beyond salvation, - except her teacher, Torey Hayden. With patience, skill, and abiding love, she fought long and hard to release a haunted little girl from her secret nightmare - and nurture the spark of genius she recognized trapped within Sheila's silence. This is the remarkable story of their journey together - an odyssey of hope, courage and inspiring devotion that opened the heart and mind of one lost child to a new world of discovery and joy. Torey Hayden deserves the kind of respect I can't give many people. She isn't just valuable, she's incredible. The world needs more like Torey Hayden. - Boston Globe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Raising the Bar 30. Juli 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This is truly one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. Torey Hayden has truly raised the bar in working with children and has, in pioneer fashion, blazed new trails and set new standards.
Sheila, a 6-year-old girl living in grinding poverty and raised by her single father faced some daunting odds when she entered Torey Hayden's special needs class. Abandoned by her mother, beaten by her father and facing a court ordered sentence to a hospital after a particularly violent episode, Sheila was extremely aggressive and wary. Since she had no bathing facilities in the home she shared with her father, Sheila was often dirty and underfed. It is a true testament to her courage and Torey Hayden's belief and persistence that Sheila began confiding in her within 3 days of her classroom placement. I like the way Torey Hayden started a grooming routine for Sheila, which positively impacted her behavior and interactions with others.
Sheila entered that classroom under very inauspicious conditions. The court ordered that she at least be educated until the state hospital opening was available. In that class, Sheila flourished and even made overtures to her classmates, some of whom functioned well below age level.
Luckily for all, Torey Hayden was able to recind the court order; Sheila stayed in that class for the remainder of the year and made quantum leaps and bounds. During an early testing session it was determined that Sheila had an IQ of 182. This highly gifted little girl was able to express herself eloquently. Quick to assess people and situations, Sheila had developed a survival mode early. In that class she used her natural endowments to her advantage.
The gifts this child had to offer and the gifts she received in that class are a song to the soul.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book will leave you very inspired! 3. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Imagine being left abandoned on the side of the highway by your own mother. Well, that was the case with shelia in the book One Child by Torey L. Hayden. I really liked this book and am eager to begin reading the sequel The Tiger's Child. The reason I like this story was Shelia, herself. During Shelia's short life, she already has to deal with many problems that I am not even sure i would survive through. For one, she has to take care of herself for the most part because her father is either too drunk or too high to take care of her. Second, she has to learn how to take control of her own life because she is going around hurting many young children. For example, at the age of six she tied a boy to a tree at a nearby woodlot and burned him. I believe that she has many mental problems to deal with, including being abandoned by her own mother. I can only imagine how terrible I'd feel to know that my mother does not really love me as much as she should. Shelia grew to be a really strong person. She never gave up on learning, even though she may not have seemed eager to learn anything, but she was afraid of losing. On many occasions, she would just rip the paper up if she did not know how to do something. Another situation that Shelia had to go through was trying to show everyone that she was actually a veryt bright student. The book said that if people are below normal IQ they are classified as being mentally slow, but if they are above normal IQ, they are placed usually in a controlled environment. Then, they get bored and therefore are more capable of causing trouble. That was the main case in Shelia's situation. No one ever considered her as being very bright kid because she never talked with any intelligence. Lesen Sie weiter... ›
