Who Cried for the Little Boy? is the brutally honest chronicle of Ellen Huntington's six-year journey to change the life of a troubled teen named Josh. From her initial excitement as she envisions being the instrument of change in a young life, through all the highs and lows, Ellen openly shares their hopes, setbacks, and discouragement. Ellen Huntington is a happily married mother of two when seventeen-year-old Josh enters her life. When she learns of the mistreatment that Josh suffered as a child, Ellen is appalled: she throws herself into making a difference in his life and the lives of the other students at the alternative school he attends. As Ellen addresses Josh's past issues of abandonment, abuse, and dysfunction, she digs deep into her faith to survive in an unfamiliar world. She struggles to understand God's plan as she discovers Josh's needs. Josh moves into her home, and she and her husband Grant become Mom and Dad to the boy in addition to their own two sons. While other families may have collapsed due to the stress and strain that Josh's issues and presence placed on the family structure, Ellen's family held strong. After all the heart-wrenching struggles Ellen and Josh endure, will Ellen's unconditional love be enough to help Josh find and sustain his new life, or will he forfeit it all?
