Sing Me a Songplease
Lynette Louise got married four times, named them all John, and poured her heart out in the creation of this CD. It's an example of who she was before she was who she is. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Lynette left school at 15, married and had two children before turning 20. By the time she was 29, Lynette had adopted four toddlers, all boys with varying degrees of autism. "Having been a foster parent," says Lynette, "I couldn't stand that the kids would be bounced from home to home. I had to keep them!" Along the way, she added two troubled teenage girls to the mix, one with learning disabilities, completing the family with eight children in all. The story of how these children not only survived but flourished is a testament to Lynette's persistence, unconventional approaches, and steadfast love.
