Product Description

Prison Child, The Story Of Vanessa Goosen’s Daughter As Told By Deonette De Kock

Vanessa Goosen is imprisoned for smuggling drugs out of Thailand after a business visit in 1994. Here she gives birth to Felicia, a beautiful dark eyed baby girl. Life in Lard Yao is relentless and no place to raise a child and according to Thai law Felicia had to be sent back to South Africa when she turns three. Felicia is raised by her mom's best friend Melanie and her husband. Initially Felicia only speaks Thai, but with her adopted family's love she grows up like any other girl. They love her like their own child. But deep inside Felicia feels alone. When Melanie dies and Vanessa is released from prison and returns to South Africa, Felicia feels like a mistake and all alone in the world. Years of rebellion and self harming follows. In her student years Felicia's life turns around, and she becomes a wounded healer, reaching out to others and bringing the message that they don’t have to feel alone or rejected. Healing is always possible. She hopes her story will touch and inspire people with or without emotional issues.
