ROB SCHEER Founder of Comfort Cases with Jon Sternfeld
A FOREVER FAMILY a truly inspiring memoir by Rob Scheer, the founder of Comfort Cases, about his turbulent childhood in the foster care system and the countless obstacles and discrimination he endured in adopting his four children.
Rob Scheer never thought that he would be living the life he is now. He’s happily married to his partner and love of his life, he’s the father of four beautiful children, and he’s the founder of an organization that makes life better for thousands of children in the foster care system.
But life wasn’t always like this.
Growing up in an abusive household before his placement in foster care, Rob had all the odds stacked against him. Kicked out of his foster family’s home within weeks after turning eighteen—with a year left of high school to go—he had to resort to sleeping in his car and in public bathrooms. He suffered from drug addiction and battled with depression, never knowing when his next meal would be or where he would sleep at night. But by true perseverance, he was able to find his own path and achieve his wildest dreams.
Poignant, gripping, and inspiring, Rob’s story provides a glimpse into what it’s like to grow up in the foster care system and sheds necessary light on the children who are often treated without dignity. A courageous, candid account of life in the foster care system, his memoir is also a timely call to action.
