“Different, but just like you and me”

A Winston-Salem author is releasing a new children’s book focused on foster care and adoption hoping to inspire people of all ages to be accepting.

Taneisha Gist published her first children’s book “Different, but just like you and me” to help children show sympathy when growing up with a disability.

“So many people counted me out, not because of me, but because of what my parents did. Our parents may make mistakes, but we are here to break generational curses” says Gist.
