Andrew Bridges







Andrew Bridge, author of Hope's Boy, spent 11 years in Los Angeles County foster care, then went on to earn a scholarship to Wesleyan, become a Fulbright Scholar, Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Resident, and graduate from Harvard Law School. Andrew's memoir Hope's Boy is the true account of his life with his mother, a young mentally ill woman, of her efforts to keep and care for him, and of his life in foster care without her.

As an adult, Andrew has spent his career bettering the lives of our nation's most vulnerable children. His work has garnered coverage in Time Magazine, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Reader's Digest, PBS, as well as in newspapers, radio, and television across the country.
