"Always share your gift, sometimes it does help and gives people hope and inspiration to keep fighting, as it did for me! I can tell you write from your heart, and you feel it and live it. I can't say thank you enough. Whenever I start to feel frustrated or alone in fighting for my son, I reread that article and it gives me strength. You are a very special person, thank you! My heartfelt thanks,"
"I felt compelled to write to you. I never respond but your article caught my breath! You're me!!! I'm you!!!"
This vast population of potential readers has felt ignored by daily blogs and newspapers - until now. The popular column - which has been offering wisdom to a growing base of readers who want to believe again in the possibilities - has joined http://www.CaglePost.com.
Carr's viewpoint has been embraced by both sides of the aisle - to the right or to the left with her slant on faith, family, politics and just learning how to let go and have fun.
Martha Randolph Carr is the author of A Place to Call Home, (Prometheus) a memoir about the reemergence of U.S. orphanages. The tools used on the campuses for successful reinvention can be adapted by anyone who is facing great changes such as divorce or career shifts. Solid tips are offered from each home on how every family can raise a happier, more confident, and independent child.
Carr also relates the moving story of how she used what she learned to help save her teenage son, Louie. What the homes have to share became the road map to mending their troubled relationship and allowed them both to fulfill their dreams. Carr is also the founder of The Shared Abundance Foundation and The Family Tree Project which works to reunite older alumni of U.S. orphanages.
Her son, Louie now lives at one of the profiled homes, Mercy Home in Chicago where he is attending college and has a 4.0 and Carr recently sold most of her belongings and pursued her dream by moving to New York City this past summer. Carr is also the author of two novels - the thriller, Wired (Nimrod House) and The Sitting Sisters (Cumberland House).
"Martha Randolph Carr excels at looking for the human dimension. When she tackles an issue, she explains the connections to real people and the real ramifications for their lives. She then buttresses her analysis with prose that is at once intellectually playful and vivid. That is a powerful combination."
Geitner Simmons, Editorial Page Editor, Omaha World-Herald

"The intelligent story line is an insightful character study told through the mind lens of Tollie that still enables the audience to comprehend what makes each sibling tick... As the puzzle pieces begin to fill the gaps and spaces (almost like a mystery), fans of deep relationship dramas will enjoy this glimpse at what shapes the adult."
Harriet Klausner, AllReaders.Com
"What works here is how good willed blacks and whites learn to like and respect each other and that works very well indeed."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Martha Carr's first novel, Wired, will join other first novels, like Time to Kill and Gone, But Not Forgotten as the creator of a new cult following for Ms. Carr. We anxiously await her next endeavor."
Mike Cullis, Little Professor Book Center, Middletown, NJ
"The American public needs light shed on the important and reemerging option of boarding schools and children's homes for children and youth whose families cannot care for them.... Martha Randolph Carr ... lets us reconsider the former 'orphanage' as a valuable solution for at-risk youth."
