Never Stop Walking will soon be published in Brazil

26 years ago I was adopted from Brazil to Sweden. The year was 1991 when I left my home country after having an incredibly tough childhood.

My life began in a cave in the middle of the Brazilian wilderness and it continued on the streets of Sao Paulo. I left a country that pretends to not see the reality that I had and that so many other street and poor children still have to face every day. There is no education, no health care, no home and sometimes no food either. It is still a big problem for millions of Brazilian children.

After living in Sweden for 26 years I can say that life here is not necessarily always easy, but at least it is a life that grants me by human rights and that gives me a chance to fulfil my dreams. Sweden is a country that means a lot to me as an entrepreneur, as a health person and, above all, as an author.

My book will be published in Brazil on August 28 , and to have had the opportunity to share my story with the wonderful Swedish people is just wonderful. However, it is impossible for me to describe the feeling I have when I stop to think that my story will now be read in Brazil as well, in the very country where everything started. A country that needs to read my story and that must start paying attention to the children and to the tough reality they live in every single day. A country that must start taking responsibility for all its citizens. But I know that Brazil is also a country that is capable of giving so much love. I am sure about this, otherwise I would never go there again.

To my Brazilian compatriots that follow not only my story but also the story of many other children: after you read my book, please tell me one thing: don’t all children deserve good childhood and a promising future?

My kindest and warmest regards,

Christiana & Christina.

Book release in Brazil

In a few weeks my book will be published in Brazil. And in a few weeks I’m going there to promote it. There are some Brazilians already questioning wether I’m telling the truth or not. People that think that the best way to make everything right in the country is to “get rid” of what they think is the problem. To actually “exterminate” (like some say it) the poor people and children. My thought is that maybe if their focus was on “exterminating” the corrupt government then maybe that would be a good start for the country. And for those questioning the validity of my story I will just say… Do that, questioning is always good. But if you just open your eyes you will se all the street children and poor children living my story every day. I will fight to give them a voice!
