I am the widow of the late Daryl Brougham who wrote the book " Through the eyes of a foster child."

Daryl's book is based on his true-life story of him being in foster care from the age of 3-month-old to 18. In the book, you will have first-hand experience of what it’s like to walk through the front door and live in a strange place. Feel, see and experience the horrors of moving, abuse, neglect, maltreatment, and much much more. Rising above all the abuse, Daryl vowed to make a difference for the children in care, and he did by becoming a qualified social worker and later published his book and became a keynote speaker and advocate on behalf of foster children.

Unfortunately, all the abuse, maltreatment, and anxiety have impacted on his physical and mental health. He left us suddenly without the chance to say the last goodbye in 2018.

For the last 2 years, I often got people to ask me if they can get the audiobook copy of " Through the Eyes of a Foster Child". Some even from people who been in care and got beaten up the end with vision problems.

Daryl's life story is inspiring, and his experience and knowledge in foster care should be delivered to more people who need help. To find out more please check through

The Aim to have enough fund raised in 3 weeks, and have the production started (which required payments in full to be paid before any work begins ). Then complete it by the end of the year but hopefully on Daryl's birthday - November 16th.
