How I've Wept
by M.C.M. Yeung

M. Yeung grew up in the foster system. From birth to the age of 18, she carved a life for herself in difficult, often hostile circumstances. This memoir chronicles those painful years and the impact of trauma, abuse, and abandonment. A combination of her 1400-page government file and fragmented memories, this is one woman’s journey to reconcile her past. A harrowing and sobering example of what children can experience in the system, this is a story of betrayal, stigma, resiliency, and the choices that can change the course of a life.

M. Yeung spent her entire childhood in the foster care system. In an environment where graduation from high school was questionable, she not only survived, but learned to thrive. Today, she lives a life far beyond expectations. This was not accomplished solely on her own, but with the kind generosity of many. With this public testimony of her private past, she brings her story to light, in tribute.
