The Case of Billy B by Cindy Vine

A young boy faces incredible odds in his fight to survive.

The case of billy b

Born with a cleft lip to a mother who didn't want him and abandoned
him when he was six months old, it seems that the odds were against Billy
from the start. His father, Chris, a soldier in the US Army is forced to
quit his job and take care of the small baby. From the beginning, Chris
and his son Billy, lack the support of family and State Departments. Forced
to go it alone, Chris struggles to balance single parenthood with his social
life. Chris develops a relationship with Billy's caregiver, Stella, who turns out
to be mentally unstable. He catches her abusing Billy and moves out of
her home. Things go from bad to worse for Chris and Billy. Chris begins to fear that their lives might be in danger. With nobody in authority to turn to, Chris is forced to come up with a plan for Billy and him to escape Stella for good.
