Heather was a talented young girl, a true poet and writer, who was taken from her native community by child services. Her life was cut short tragically not long ago, and Ginger’s family, who were always close to her, wanted to give wings to her words so that her life story and her poetry become known instead of her death being just another statistic in the news.
